Another UFO completed

This is a stunning Japanese quilt that I have made for my dear sister in law Margaret.  Its a gift for her 60th birthday but I know I am safe putting it on here as she is not a computer user at all.  Margaret loves all things Oriental and we often joke that she was a Geisha in a past life.
The design is by Elizabeth Camping and its called Pathways to the Wells. I made it at a 2 day course at Patchwork by Sea back last summer - in Jan if I can recall.  But never got around to the binding.  But tonight that is done yay.  Now I can safely tuck it away for her birthday later this year. In the sidebar log I have put the photo with Robbie my Bichon sitting on it.  When ever I lay a quilt on the floor he always sits on the centre. 
As you can well see by my log I have been busy this July getting a lot of projects completed although Hooterville is yet to be bound I will get onto that... I promise.  I guess the cold nights lend itself to less outdoor activities and more stitching time.
