One more UFO!

hi everyone!  last night while watching Vikings I finished the binding on my mom's quilt.  last year she told me she wanted to learn how to quilt.  Yeah!!!  she told me the colors she wanted.  And I thought  some Kansas troubles fabric would be perfect for her.  And in my stash I had quite a bit!  LOL....  

Anyway, we did buy a couple of fabrics to add to the quilt.  We did buy the backing.  I hardly ever have yardage for backings. I did have a friend quilt it for me.  so all was good.  

I did make her take out some stitching from time to time.  She just didn't see the reasoning for an accurate 1/4" seam!  LOL.....  I was going to have her bind it.  But Dad had some surgery last week and she has a lot on her plate, so a binding did I do!  

The pattern is from a magazine and is a modified wedding ring.  I love it and might make one for me.  it's was very simple.  She is very proud of herself and should be.  Dad did a lot of cutting.  I can't say I made it myself.  it was a joint effort.  But I do feel comfortable claiming as a UFO finished.  It was started last march I believe!  Go Mom!!!  

thanks for looking,  PS I think this is #27!  wow!!!
