Completed! My mom played a big part of getting this one finished. After the machine quilting debacle, she helped me pick out what felt like millions of stitches over several days. Then she volunteered to tie it (like my Granny's old quilts). She even applied the binding that I made.
Here is a photo that shows the backing. It's the minkee (manufactured by the Devil)! It is actually lovely and terribly soft and plush. It feels fantastic! But, it really was a bear to work with.
I am glad that I didn't just throw it out like I was afraid to do. I utilized what I had put into it and with my Mom's help, saved it! $$$ Nothing is more frugal than a good salvedge job!
My sheets are in the dryer and I can't wait to sleep under this bad boy!!!
