The quilt is finished!  Phew!

And Toots is very happy.

Final ironing and pinning stage to close the open, stuffing edge:

Here it is before I threw it in the wash, so I can put it on her bed tonight.

The stitching isn't perfect, neither is the stuffing, but you know what?  I did it.  It's my first quilt.  I'm proud of it. 

And Toots's toes will not be hanging out the foot of it when she sleeps for a looong time to come.

Nope.  They sure won't!

And you know what else?  Look at the look on her face in both shots.  I'll wait.  Go ahead.

She knows I love her, big time.
