Daughter's Quilt

Hi friends!
Don't forgot my followers giveaway   HERE
Binding my daughter's quilt.
Her birthday was yesterday but i want see her til the weekend.
I have been working on binding it for a couple of days. Just work on it after i finish reading  my email at night or when the news is on in the after noon.
This is it spread out on the bed.
It has a real good drop on each side and is plenty long enough.
In a way i wish i hadn't used the yellow because it fades next to the other bright colors.
Not enough to take the whole thing apart!!!
My Rose of Sharron bush is blooming , my mother always called them holly hark.
The one i brought over here from my old house was 15 years old and died last year.
But i still have the two that sis gave me a few years ago. This one is doing good but Tommy's
 says i planted the other one on rock!
I am going to try to give it some tree food and see if that helps it, it's really short and it was planted at the same time as this one.
Have a good one
Quilt Happy

I really enjoy the binding part of making a quilt, it is so satisfying to put in those final stitches. x

I LOVE Rose of Sharon. We had TONS of them everywhere when we moved here. They must love my yard because the reseed freely and spread like wildfire. I once saw a lady buying them at Meijer. I gave her my address and tole her she could have all she wanted. She came and dug out a truck full. My neighbor took starts and planted them inside his privacy fence. I have several varieties. I love my Hibiscus too (same family). Probably why I get so many Hummers here too.

Bet your daughter loves that quilt.
