Every quilt I have made, with the exception of my first one in grade 12, has been hand bound. I think it gives a much nicer edge and more of a home-made touch. That being said, I used to despise doing the binding on my quilts so they would normally be passed off to my mom to do! Lately though I have been kind of enjoying the process. Maybe I wouldn't be so excited about it though if I had to do a queen sized quilt!
This quilt is the absolute perfect size in my opinion. I have made a couple other lap quilts before but they are always too small! This one is just the right size for a little snooze on the couch with, the only thing that could make it better is if it had plush backing!
Just for reference, here is a picture of the quilt top (without the borders):
