Binding started.........

The binding is started on the green Lady of the Lake quilt.  I decided to hand finish this one.  My goal is to have it done by Saturday night and post the photo of the finished quilt on Sunday morning.
I worked many hours in the basement again yesterday, choosing backings, doing laundry, ironing fabric.  I also did the staystitching around the purple 16 patch and I was admiring the back with the seams so neat and tidy.  I decided to post a photo of it.  This is the result of following my 16 patch tutorial.  I love tidy backsides on my quilt tops.  

My two friends are coming over today to sew and I hope to piece several backs for the quilts next in line for finishing.
