Two down and seven to go....it is progress even if small. I did learn it takes one movie for me to hand-stitch down binding on a twin size quilt. (That is without cat interference!)
The first quilt is my King Size Log Cabin. This is the largest quilt I have ever made! (Hangs past the bottom of the matress on a King size bed) I made this using a large basket of 1-1/2 inch strips that I cut out of odd ends of repros and from repros that didn't quite "read" right to me. It was quilted by Judy Lockhart with Batptist Fans. The blocks were my leaders and enders (re Bonnie Hunter) and were next to my sewing machine for at least two years. I still have a small pile of blocks and a large basket of strips.....The second finish is (wait for it.....) the #@%& red, white and blue quilt for my DH. It is finished...it is truely finished (apologies to Sally Field....) This small quilt has been over SIX years in the making! My Dh saw a quilt like this in one of my antique quilt books and said he would like one. Since this was the first quilt he showed any intest in I immediately pulled fabrics. He then selected one red, one blue and asked for a solid white. Say what? Well because it took so long to get to the border I had to add two more fabrics. Bonnie quilted in an all over pattern and I put the binding on last night watching "Gran Torino."
Can you say DONE! (Happy Dance......)
Now back to watching the morning news and pinning down binding on the Double Delight....
