Blue Scarf...

Sometimes it feels good to work on some of the smaller projects.

A few years ago I made several pieced scarves...saved one and gave the others to sisters and friends at Christmas.  I'm not sure why but this blue one was never finished.  Guess I was through my scarf phase!

 It has some great fabrics (including some hand-printed indigo and men's suiting) in it though so I decided to finish it up and give it to the American Quilt Study Group for the silent auction in September.

And good news...the machine part of the binding on Orca Bay is done...now I just need to put a movie in the DVD player and get to hand-stitching it down.  Definitely could have this big project done by the end of May!

It's lovely. I look forward to seeing your quilting.
By the way, is it washable or must you dry clean (since it includes suiting)?

Love, love indigo fabric. Am so glad you got the binding on(from the previous days post). Hugs. Off to Texas for a work trip this morning.

Isn't that interesting, you don't often find pieced scarves, but I made a couple several years ago, just liked the fabric, nice to see that someone else has tried that too!!!!
