What did I achieve today? Well, let's see. I trimmed the pastel quilt we worked on on Wednesday.
It is not a great photo but you can see the striped binding at least. And here you can see the pretty floral backing which I hadn't shown you before.
Next I made the binding and rod pocket for my Christmas quilt and got them sewn on. I did the hand sewing tonight while watching TV. It was a bit of a struggle because my hand was really sore but I really wanted to get it done. There is just one problem with this quilt. I am not sure where I can hang in at Christmas time. I am not sure that I have a wall big enough for it and I don't want to lie it on a sofa etc. I will have to give it some thought!
And the back
And a close up of the backing so you can see what it is like - one of my favourite Christmas fabrics that I have had for ages and am glad to have finally found a use for.
After finishing the binding a spent an hour or so on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. Yes, the colour is white but I teamed it with lots of random scrap squares and got this and tonight I added some squares of the bright blue to some of the four patches. I have a companion print to the blue which will be the border so I am pick out all the colours to cut some more squares to go with the four patch blocks. I think there will be some gold in there too somewhere.
The end result will be something like this and then I will add borders. I need to do some cutting tomorrow when the light is better, and when I am not so tired.
Now before I go -
You have to see this gorgeous quilt over here. It is called "Bird of Paradise" and the detail is amazing!
Till next time......happy stitching!
