Guess what I finally got to start binding yesterday?
This quilt has sat here with the binding attached for quite a while, taking a back seat to other quilts that needed to reach completion on a deadline.
I met that deadline yesterday! At least on the two big quilts that needed finishing.
Bindings stitched, hanging sleeves stitched, labels stitched…they are ready to roll!
Can you hear my huge sigh of relief?
ALL of the quilts are now ready to be shipped off to the Quiltmaker Offices this week so they will be there when I arrive!
Also in that box go the step-out block parts, scrap user’s system strips and parts, rulers, tools, ANYTHING I think might be a necessary prop during the filming of these 6 workshops.
I’m on schedule! Miracle of miracles…I’m on schedule!
The last two bindings completed!
Labels will be signed when I reach home.
Three sides are DONE!
In all of that worrying about the burgeoning stash last week – when I really look at how much fabric I *AM* using, and the quilts that ARE getting made thanks to a very diverse stash, I’m feeling pretty good about things.
Until I get home and have to organize more!
Close up of quilting. Can you see it?
This quilt will remain here at the cabin, waiting for me to finish that one last side and the hanging sleeve upon my NEXT visit in a few weeks.
Some backing fun!
I thought I had used up ALL of the leftover lozenges in the back…but guess who found another baggie full while moving stash in the basement? Oh well! I’ll use them somewhere!
Random 3” units sewn into a column.
And a label to sign in the corner!
I love that the binding is the same color as the bush the quilt is draped on.
I’m cleaning things up at the cabin. Unloading the fridge, packing a cooler, getting things turned off…Sadie and I are headed home this morning.
I’m looking at Quilt-Cam on Wednesday evening at 9pm Eastern.
I hope you’ll join me then!
