Lap Quilt Finished

Denise and I picked up the finished quilts earlier this week. We were quite happy with how the quilter finished them. Today, I finally got around to finishing the binding on the tool lap quilt.
I spent a few hours earlier this week watching videos about how to properly sew on machine bindings with all machine sewing, and now that I've successfully done it, I'm a fan. (The secret I was missing is start by sewing the binding on the backside then fold it forward and sew it down along the edge. It's very tidy.) I doubt I'll hand-sew too many more bindings.

It's quilted with a fun repeating tool pattern:
I've still got to add the binding to Jeff's space quilt.

I also dropped off my father's train lap quilt. It should be finished in a week or two.
