Finishing My Quilt Show Quilt

I have been working on my Lone Star Lariat quilt for some time now.

 I finished the top a few months ago and had a professional quilt it for me but I still had the binding to do and sew on a hanging tube and label.

So this weekend I got to work.

First the hanging tube.

Next the label

And finally the binding which took me about 4 hours.

And now I have it all finished and I'm ready to take it on Wednesday for the Ellis County Quilt Show this next weekend.  It's my first quilt show entry and I can't wait to see it hanging with all those other beautiful quilts!
