Sunday sewing

I have had a great day with my sewing machine, we got lots done. I made and sewed the binding on 2 quilts, I'll share them later when I have the binding sewn down. I also made 2 more blocks for my Swoon quilt, these blocks are such fun to make. I love the blue with the red, they really compliment each other.

I have made 5 now, only 4 to go.



I also sewed the borders on my christmas stitchery quilt, there are 9 blocks altogther and I want to try and have it finished for this christmas, block one is nearly finished. Its a Rosalie Quinlan design.





While I was in a binding kind of mood I sewed it on my new sewing folder which I made a couple of weeks ago, they are easy and very useful, I think I'll have to make a few more.


Now its time to cook dinner so I'll say goodbye, I hope you found some time to sew today.
