Ready to hand stitch

I feel like this is the quilt that will never get done! I did make more progress last evening by getting the corners mitered and the top trimmed. I don't know if you all do this step or not - when I get a side trimmed, I press the binding to the outside to crisp up the seam line. I have a girlfriend that I showed that to the last time she was visiting and she had never done that. It just make the binding roll to the back easier and makes for a nice finish.
I got a whole 5 minutes of hand stitching done.

Five minutes is five minutes! I don't press my binding either before or after I sew it on. I let the heat from my hand shape it. But we all have whatever method works for us.
