I love weekends, don't you? Especially when you work during the week, the weekend is for relaxing, catching up on your jobs and of course sewing. Last night I had big plans for Friday night with friends but I was just too tired to sew on my machine so I sat in the lounge and sewed the binding down on my Fat quarter shop BOM,
I was thrilled to get this done as I'm not a big fan of binding. People say its the best part of making a quilt but for me its not. I like to move onto something new.
Anyway its all done and I love it. I have thought about making a label and doing it in stitchery, so I'll have to work on that idea.
Remember seeing this quilt last week in my post, well its finally alldone. Its so big I had to take it outside to measure my borders, then make my backing and make sure that it was big enough. I used all my stash fabrics for this beauty and I absolutely love it. It was a pleasure to work on each block, I'm not sure how many half square triangles i made but there are quite a few.
Now what do you think of my backing? Pretty impressive eh!! This took me 3 hours to piece, I already had the blocks which I found in my cupboard and forgot I even had. So I cut up my bigger pieces of fabric and made them all fit together.
That was such a good use of the fabrics I had left because now I have no bigger pieces at all and plenty of room in the cupboard for new fabrics. Its already now to be quilted by the lovely Sarah. At 95 inches square its bound to take her a little while.
I still have a few pretty flowers in my garden, here are some californian poppies, I love these bright flowers, they self seed and pop up anywhere.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Thankyou to Cheryll for hosting last nights sewing evening, If you would like to see what everyone else up to, click here.
