one down.. two to go





 summertime chains quilting detail

grey HST quilting detail & backing fabric










I enjoy making those final decisions on my quilts, choosing a quilting pattern, auditioning fabrics for the binding. The part where I tend to stall is actually putting the binding on & hand sewing it down...but not this time! Xmas day is not too far away and we have a large group coming to celebrate with us this year. I plan on gifting a few quilts and so this week I was happy to get the phone call from Annette to say she had finished my quilting! I picked up my quilts, all of which had some great machine quilting, and I got straight onto those bindings.
I finished the grey HST quilt in record time, just wish I could come up with a better name for it! The other two quilts - Summertime Chains and Hadley & Cream- both have their bindings machine sewn on, I just need to spend a bit of time hand sewing them down. I seem to work really well lately with a deadline ... do you?
Many thanx to Annette @ Wild Cotton Ltd

  5. What a bunch of pretty quilts! I love the interesting quilting you have chosen. I usually do the binding quite quickly because (strangely) it is one of my most favourite parts!

  9. Such a beautiful and peaceful quilt. What about naming it some kind of feeling it provokes like: serenity, calm skies or something like that.
