One Monthly Goal - Rescued GFG




My one monthly goal is to do the binding on this grandmother’s flower garden.  

It is not from my family and the family that gave it to me doesn’t know who did it and kept a few other quilts that were completed, but didn’t want this one.  So I call it my rescue GFG - have to come up with a better name.  It will either go for a church benefit or a donation (maybe to a family getting resettled - either refuggee or homeless)....
It is quilted.  The binding needs to be cut, sewn together and applied.  Application will mean cutting off some of the edges; more on why I feel thats okay later.
