My June OMG goal is a finish...

I really didn't think I would get it finished....I pushed myself to the last day.
I put the first and last stitch on the binding while travelling to Canada today.


It is a 4 hour trip and it took just over 2 hours to finish it.
The picture shows the binding pinned in place and ready to stitch.
I was hoping to take another picture with the binding stitched down but....
forgot to bring the camera on this trip so no more pictures. 
It hasn't been washed and I will probably wait until I am ready to gift it.
I will not be taking the quilt back to Michigan...
it would just be another quilt to pack  
and there might not be enough room on the truck for another quilt.

This is our last trip to Canada before our big move.
Hopefully it will go as scheduled on July 12th.  
After our appointment at the bank today,
we went to check on how the house has progressed.

The hole is dug and the foundation is poured.
Never thought to take a picture with my phone when we were there today.
I think we will drive by tomorrow and get a picture.

I'm joining the June Finishing party with
Heidi at Red Letter Quilts - OMG
