Finally, Laughing @ Home

My quilt, Laughing Out Loud, is all finished.
This morning I folded the binding over to the front, pondering which thread to use, black or white. The quilt, of course, had the answer. Chris had quilted it with a yellow green. There on my thread rack, this spool of thread called my name, and said "Me! Me! Use me!"
Once I was finished, and I pulled out all the pins, and signed the back, I folded it up, and brought the quilt to its new home.

When I told my Mom and her husband I was gifting them with the quilt, they were both speechless. They both cried, and my Mom asked, "Really?"

Yes, Mom. Really.

But did you-know-who have sufficient time to spread black and white furs all over it before it left the house?
