Another WIP finished!

I went to my granma's today to discuss our trip to Myrtle Beach with her and my 2 aunts and cousin. I had to show off my recent projects - the ugly quilt, the big shirt, my Very Badly purse - and they all loved them. I was waiting for a my aunt and granma to give me orders on what colors they wanted for the purse.
While we were talking, I worked on the binding on my table runner that I made at a class in March. I know - that is forever ago, but I just took my binding class to learn how to put it on. I wanted to make sure that I was doing that correctly. I finished the binding and here are pictures of the full view and close up.

Now, onto important matters. We will be leaving for Myrtle Beach on a Saturday morning and stopping in Asheville, SC to see the Biltmore. We will spend the night somewhere close to there. For the week, we will be in Myrtle Beach and will take a day trip or two to Charleston. I need to find quilt shops in Asheville, Myrtle Beach and Charleston. I am very excited to be seeing Charleston again, but am very excited to go to some new quilt shops.
If anyone lives around these areas or knows of shops in those areas, let me know!!

Every time I do I think, "Gee, that is soo pretty." You do really nice work, especially for a beginner. Your table runner is beautiful too. I'd love to have you in any class I teach. Have a great trip. Sounds like y'all will have a lot of fun stuff to do. I would love to see Charleston one day. DH's busy time at work is summer and so with daughter in school it is hard to get away. Be sure to take lots of pictures so I can live vicariously through you. LOL Nikki
