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 caffeine...coffee, 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!
