Sugar's Quilt (A Finish with Strange Circumstances)

YeeHaw!  I have a another FINISH!
 

It's 28 x28 inch square - okay so now I'm thinking you are not so impressed - but wait!
I started this a long time ago - in February 2011.  And after 3 years, I finished it in one weekend. Okay now you can be impressed.
 
It looked like this
 
I really didn't like it!  So in the drawer it sat.

Last week I was thinking I really ought to finish this quilt - I got up from the couch, walked into my sewing room...

And this is strange.. and I'll let you decide -

and the box I had it in had fallen out of the top of my closet & was laying on the floor.
In ten years I have never had a box just fall from the closet.

So I thought - hmmm....Is God trying to tell me something?
If so, I better get busy.

So I ripped it apart and put in back together - added more material.  Quilted it.
 
Put the binding on.
I sewed the binding onto the back and flip it over to the front - then sewed it on with a decorative stitch.  Let me tell you it's SUPER FAST.  How do you like that cute little strip for the binding?  I think it adds so much to the quit.
 
And the proof is in the pudding - here's the owner of her quilt enjoying it.
 
(Yikes! Poor quality picture.) She's gotten old and can't jump up on the couch to cuddle and get warm with us.  Sure I could have given her an old towel, but she's spoiled and loves the quilts. I'm happy she has her own little quilt.
