It's such a great feeling to get things DONE that have been languishing (or not!).
Yesterday I spent the day out at my friend, Twyla's shop, Quilted Memories , where we yacked, enjoyed lunch, yacked some more...and fit some quilting activity in between there. Oh I had big plans....I was going to get another quilt bound....AND work on my Blackbird Designs applique baskets. Oh HA! I got 2 sides of the quilt bound! Geez...so much for wanting to really get tons of handwork done! It's hard to stay focused in and among wonderful wools and fabrics!
BUT...I stayed up late last night....until after 1:00AM....and got the quilt bound! I can't show it to you though...it's a surprise gift for someone that pops in on this blog. But I can show you the back...
Ooooh...aaaaah! ha! It's a departure for me, but I think will be enjoyed by the recipient and that's what it was made for!
Today...I finally got the Amish utility quilt I've been working on put together.
I decided to float a coral inner border in there.
*YAAAAAAAAAWN* Kind of boring at the moment, but as with most Amish quilts...the quilting will bring it alive!
If there's interest, I will kit up a couple of these. I think it ended up about 56 x 72. A nice large lap!
I've got just a few more things waiting to be tended to downstairs in the quilt den. One being a quilt that needs scallops cut out of the border and the binding sewn on. That will be next on the agenda most likely!
Good thing I have a whole weekend ahead of me, and then some!!
