This is one of my HeartStrings quilts and I finished the binding last night.
After the binding was done I set it on the table to wait until today to photograph and kept stopping to admire my freehand Baptist Fan quilting. I just LOVE how it looks on our HeartStrings quilts and that its so easy to do.
Chesty and I had a quiet evening and I sat and bound this small HeartStrings top — SaraF recognized it as one she sent me to finish and donate. I’m glad she let me know, I was feeling bad about not remembering!!
Is it crazy that I’m having fun quilting these on my regular sewing machine?! I have no desire to try a larger top but these small ones are fun and even though slooow seems to be in right now, I admit I’m motivated by finishes. Finished tops, finished quilts.
Patting myself on the back for another finish and thanking Stephanie for egging me on!
This little HeartStrings group quilt is now done. Blocks by Marianne, assembled at the WI//MN sew-in and quilted and bound by me. Such a fun quilt.
And I love how well the backing goes with the top … Just a lucky find at Joann’s.
I’m leaving for Maine in a few days to attend a HeartStrings sew-in and I’m trying to get a few things done before I go. Quilting and binding this one has now been checked off that list.
This is the last HeartStrings top from the group in CA and it’s finished. I put the last stitches in the binding last night.
I haven’t accomplished much sewing or knitting wise today. Too much time spent on insurance issues but we’re closer to getting some compensation from our insurance company.
I did manage to piece a back for one quilt and pull some yardage for another that doesn’t need backing. I’m falling way behind on piecing backs as I have 8 of my quilts and 3 non standard size HeartStrings waiting for backs.
