Happy Hour Quilted!

Today I got so much accomplished, I wonder how much more I could have gotten done, had I not had to work. I worked with Cindy today and we had a great, fast day. We have such a good time and work so well together. After work I picked up the bobbin thread I needed at Hancock's since they had it. I wanted grommets but no such luck. I picked up 4 new pots and soil and repotted all my plants tonight. I have several from when my grandparents died and I try to keep them all alive, but I don't have a very good green thumb. The ivy from the wedding is doing the best of any of my plants. They are all repotted now.
After supper I finished the last two rows of quilting on the Happy Hour quilt. I quilted it with loops.

Then I had to decide what I wanted for binding. I had planned to do red, but when I went to get it on Tues. night, we were out at the shop. I had enough pink, so planned to do that. Today when I was working, I found the red! I got enough to do the binding, so I had to choose. I sent a pictures to my mom and friends, asked Paul, and they all agreed on the red. The red is in the picture below, the pink is the first border.

I got the red binding on and now I can take it to work tomorrow and work on it at lunch. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The quilt looks really wrinkly, but that's where I had it wrapped on the roller when quilting and once I wash it, it will relax. This UFO should be finished by the end of the week.

It looks great! I've done that quilt and loved working on it. I did mine as a wall hanging in browns and turquoise for my dining room. Love your colors.
