Brandon's Finished Quilt!!!!

Okay so I have suffered through it (yes, suffer) and it is finally finished. And Brandon's opinion on the blanket is.....Brandon is very excited to have his quilt done. He was a very good boy in waiting for me to finish other quilts before his. He is a good boy. Nathan saw that I was taking pictures of Brandon, so of course he had to come in. I was able to get a very nice picture of them. This is a rare thing!! What beautiful boys!! Wait, boy and dinosaur.Kimball is very excited to see Brandon's finished quilt too, and of course had to be in the pictures too. They always want their picture taken when I don't want to, but when I want to, they HATE it. I think it is a kid thing. It was suppose to be a regular rag quilt, but I added a border because I thought it needed to be bigger for Brandon. As you can see from my previous post.
The back is the puzzle piece material. I really like it because it HIDES all of my mistakes and it still looks good.
This is a "wonky" stitch. I have created this "wonky" stitch because there was no way I was going to be able get them straight. My hats goes off to Amanda Jean that did get it right!
Then on the edges I did the stippling. Although bad news with that, I think the tension on my sewing machine is broken because I cannot get it right. Travis did help me tighten the screw but it has become loose again. I am not sure, but I need to take it in to get looked at.
If you look at the binding you see this star material that does not fit in at all, but I like it. Gives it a little bit of flare.
