More binding done

This top was pieced by Barbara in FL and sent to me to quilt and donate.


I pieced one of my off centered 4 patches for the back. The HeartStrings label is sewn right into the corner and covered on two sides with the binding.

  • You’ve been so productive while your husband was away. You must be exhausted now. All your work has been beautiful though.

  • That’s really pretty. The backing fabrics are perfect, and I like the way you attached the label — very tidy! 🙂

    There is such a sense of accomplishment when you complete things you have planned. I spent some of the long Thanksgiving weekend sorting through old papers, quilt magazines (saving only the patterns I plan to make) and just eliminating a lot of clutter from my life. It feels liberating and like a weight has been lifted ~ I feel “free” … wierd, huh? LOL

    So do you sleep? (j/k). The quilts are beautiful and I loved the panto you used on your aunts’ quilt/shams.
    How’s little Chesty doing?

    What is this quilt pattern? I’ve seen you quilt a few of them. I use your backing method a lot. Thanks.

  • You are a machine! I can’t believe how much you are getting done. Can I borrow some of your ambition??? 😉

    I love the quilt..very bright and happy.

  • What a very productive weekend you have had. Kind of like your very own quilt retreat! How fun! Love the plumage panto, it is one of my favorites! How is Chesty feeling?

  • Alison:

    Wow, I haven’t caught up with your blog for a couple of days, but it looks like you’ve done a month’s work in that time! The quilts are all gorgeous, I love the orange ponies and you’ve done a fab job on your aunt’s big quilt too. Are you trying to get a heap of stuff finished before christmas???

  • Helen:

    What a beautiful cheery quilt!!

  • Siobhan:

    Like the off-center backing!

  • Gari:

    I finished the binding on two quilts today and have clipped about half of a twin sized rag quilt. Mid clipping I am saying “what was I thinking?” I made two: WOF strips, 11″ and 6″, so I am quilting them before clipping. Love that sense of accomplishment.
