one down.. two to go

 summertime chains quilting detail


hadley & cream 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

Someone must have been very good this year to get so high on Santa's 'Nice' list! Love the play of movement on the HST Quilt - lucky, lucky friends.

Laura said...

that is very pretty. I love the low volume and it looks like the quilting has worked out well too!

Your quilting is awesome, and I love the low volume colors of your quilt!

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!

I just love your HST quilt!! I'm newly obsessed with HSTs and just marvel at all of the options :) I agree with Polly, the play and movement in this quilt is wonderful :)

Love the muted colors in that HST quilt!

This is lovely. The colours work so well together. Lucky recipient!

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