It's finished! I finished the quilting late yesterday afternoon and sewed on the binding that evening. I managed to get it washed at home before I came back up too! It's finished size is about 80"x60".

I'm really happy with how it turned out. I was pretty nervous about quilting it myself, wrestling with it on my machine. It really wasn't bad at all! Granted there are plenty of imperfections and it did take a long time, but it was totally worth it!

Can't wait to start my next quilt!

EDIT: I just wanted to mention here the great tutorials that helped me make this quilt!
- Binding Tutorial Series from The Sometimes Crafter
- Quilt Sandwich & Free Motion Quilting from Oh, Fransson!
