quilting and gardening (picture heavy)
My wonderful neighbour helped me carry it believe me it was not easy it weighed a ton!
It opened up the yard and the hosta underneath are also thanking me for airing them out.
This was the Border Creek Mystery from Quilts at the Creek
I was going to do a Baptist Fan but then Tella had done another quilt for me with this paisley and I loved it so asked for it on this quilt as well doesn`t it look amazing! Just picked it up yesterday!
I cut a strip off each of some fat quarters to piece this quilt together to try to make it as scrappy as possible thought I would be able to put a dent in the Fat Quarters, I realize i have a long way to go.
So in between gardening and sewing backings and getting binding on it has been extremely busy around here.
The design of this quilt was as you go so I just made it all kinda as I went along...not to bad eh?
Tella again picked a great pattern we actually used a fabulous maple leaf panto that was perfect for the fall feel of this quilt
I have another done in the same panto I will show later the binding has to be put on.
as you can see on these quilts the binding is done as well
This was the stack and whack I did many years ago as you can see it is bound as well
Well I hope your days are as full as mine and that you are enjoying every one of them. I will have lots more to post in between keeping up with the everyday events.
Enjoy each moment because each moment goes so fast.
I will be linking with Needle and Thread today
