On a binding roll and a new to me!

I'm trying to stay focused on my 2013 list so last night I started work on my next set of bindings.  The first is my Material Obsessions quilt.

I auditioned lots of fabrics.  I really thought I was going to use either a red or bright green but in the end I liked the look of this blue check the best.  The color may be neutral with this quilt but the checks cut on the bias have a great texture.  They are right up there with striped bindings in my book!

Also I got a "new-to-me" quilt in the mail.   If you have read this blog for any length of time you know how much I love a cup of, tea, hot chocolate...whatever!  So I have wanted a cup quilt... preferably vintage for quite some time.  Now I have one!

This came from Oklahoma and was made in the 1940's.  The quilting is a bit primitive but I like it!  Of course having so many fabrics and that much red what isn't to like!
