Finished the Basket Quilt

Happy July 5th! I hope you got to spend time with those you love and that you had a safe and happy holiday. Here are some photos of the Basket quilt that I finally finished.
This is the first quilt that I've finished using the machine sewn binding with a little flange:
It was fast and easy. The tutorial is from 52 Quilts. It is so strange to sew the binding onto the back and then pull it around to the front. But its's SO much faster than stitching down the binding by hand!
I'm (hopefully) selling this little quilt to help pay for Lola's vet bills.

 I don't even have Charlie's vet bill paid off yet...sigh. She's totally worth it though. She's on pain meds that I have to give her twice a day and I have to say, she detects that pill no matter what I try to hide it in, eats around it and spits it out.  She's so smart! I'm also working on the never ending quilt repair project:
 So I'm off to work some more on this quilt repair. Have a wonderful weekend and lots of fun! XO from Bev

Praying that Lola gets better and better! Your quilt is beautiful, and I bet it goes fast.
Thanks for the flange tutorial link - I clicked on it, but it didn't work, so I searched for it and here is the link:
