My first quilt - done!

When I wrote about the 10-year quilt it completely skipped my mind that it is, in fact, my first quilt. Today is monumentous in that I have actually completed said monstrosity. As I finished the hand-binding and was confronted with some tragically contorted puckering I suddenly realized, "hey, I've never done this before!" and magically my shame at producing something so gruesome was transformed to knowing smugness: I had set the bar so low, my next quilt was bound to be much improved.
Also, I'll never again underestimate the value of basting!
