Just to show you that I actually did bind the Ice Cream quilt. It’s in the dryer now and then it’s ready to be gifted.
Here’s a fairly old UFO. Everyone on one of my quilting lists was raving about the Yellow Brick Road pattern 2-3 years ago so I had to try it. I realized quickly I don’t like quilts from this pattern – mine or others I’ve seen and this one sat unquilted until today. It will be donated as a HeartStrings quilt (donating *ugly* quilts is another recent discussion on one of my groups that I won’t go into right now) .
Since I can be pretty assembly line about my quilting at times, this has the same thread and pattern I’m going to quilt on another UFO that’s next up for quilting. The pantograph is Whirlygig from Willow Leaf Studios. It’s one I recently ordered and this is the first quilt I’ve used it on. It was quick and easy and more important – it takes advantage of the smaller amount of throat space I have on the Premier so I don’t have to roll as frequently.
I checked my binding bin to see if I’d made a binding and found one cut from the yellow butterfly fabric but I think this needs a blue binding so I’ll use the fabric on the bottom of the photo instead.
Next up is binding this one and piecing a backing for another ugly UFO. I think using the yellow thread and this pantograph will help to break up all the blue background on that one.
