Yes, you read that correctly ... I shouldn't sew in my jammies! This morning I had a late start, after painting some more yesterday I was feeling weary, and I decided to read a little in bed this morning. After surfacing and having coffee, I decided to mosey on into the study and make up the binding for the quilt. Well, I was pressing the binding, and who should walk in, but my hubby ... closely followed by one of his friends! Ooops!! Shamelessly I continued to make up my binding, I mean really ... what's more important!! *gulp* I should really be taking Flylady's lead, and getting dressed to my shoes, but hey ... we need a little mortification now and then right??
So the binding is made up, and I just need to attach it. I hope to get that done today. See it there, it's all scrappy ... I'm loving scrappy bindings right now, and given the quilt is a scrappy one, it should look quite good! I have a number of things to get thru, so I'll see if I have time to get to it. I want to go out at some point and see if I can get a wooden venetian for my kitchen. The hideous pink verticals that the previous owners of this house installed really do not go at all in the newly sage green kitchen. (Or in any room of any home for that matter!!)
Amy received so many lovely comments on her quilt yesterday, so we thought it would be nice to share her first quilt with you. It's super cute, it took a couple of years to make. We had purchased a large pack of eye spy fabrics when Amy and I visited PIQF with Linda in 2000. The following year, Amy started piecing nine patches with them. She must have been about 6. Fast forward a couple of years, and we decided to put them together. Many of them were very lumpy, so we unpicked them so they'd go together. Amy chose the sashing and cornerstone fabric, and we put the quilt together. The back is pieced with 9 bright fat quarters, and the excess from the edges was saved for the binding. This quilt was one of the first things I machine quilted!
I really want to respond to some of the comments from yesterday, but Blogger is misbehaving right now, so I'll leave that until my next post. *fingers crossed* It'll behave for me later on!
