I finished it - and I love it. Jessie loves it. Todd even liked it.
I cheated and sewed the binding on by machine - but it was done by about 7:00 Friday night. And I dove right in on quilting my picnic quilt - although I am having issues with the thread tension. Which might just be more noticeable since I have red thread on the bottom and yellow on the top. Oh well. I'm not ripping it out.
More rain here - just a steady drizzle. Guaranteed to make our 4th a drippy one.
