What's finished anyhow?

I mean this monthly challenge is to finish the whole item??? Does just the quilt top count? do I have to quilt and bind it first? what about a label? I want to count this quilt top.....I'll have to check IF it's legal LOL
I finished this quilt top on Sunday but I didn't have time to post this picture until now. I can't wait to get this one quilted but I got another I want to send ahead of it. I used a layer cake of Urban Couture. I was able to pick up the borders at my LQS (practically unheard of for me).

This is the next quilt I will get custom quilted. I have had it for 5 years... While I was piecing it my Mother in-law wanted to make one. Once her blocks were pieced, she wanted to quilt it. Somehow, I ended up quilting it and she put the binding on. After that, I didn't have the motivation to quilt MY quilt. The pattern is French Rose by Cabbage Rose from the book Threads of Time. I decided I am going to have Jackie do this one for me. By the way she's having a giveaway on her blog so check it out!.

I love the one you are sending me! Very pretty! Finished is a matter of speaking, I guess it depends on what each individuals definition is...

The FINISHED top has lovely fabrics/colurs. I can imagine that you weren´t excited to quilt your quilt after finishing your MIL´s.
