Max & Whiskers Finally finished!!

My quilt sandwich all pined on the kitchen floor.

Ta Da!  I so wanted to take a picture of the finished quilt
outside today.  However the wind was so bad that it was
not happening :( 
So I had to settle for a pic on the bed.

Here is a close-up.
I am soo happy with how my binding turned out!  This is the first
Ever time that I can say that :)
It is not perfect by  any matter of means,that being said it is as
close to perfect as I have ever come!
The corners look pretty good and there aren't any spots where I
didn't catch the binding when sewing it on the back! 

This is the back side.
I just did straight line quilting.
When I was making the blocks for the front side of the quilt I
somehow made one too small.  I wanted to incorporate into
the quilt.  Finally the thought occurred to me to use it on the
back side.
So I cut it in half and then used a decorative stitch to sew them
on the backing in opposite corners.

This is the top left side (for some reason both
of these pictures came out sideways in the post)
I sewed a M on it for Max!

This is the bottom right corner.
This one has a W sewed on  for whiskers!
Now I can check this off of my summer projects
list :)
