A little finish to be going on with

I finished this little quilt a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't show you as this wasn't the final story for this little piece. Not know for little quilts, this one measures a mere 12" x 24" and is part of the Challenge quilts for Expedition Art Quilts blog. Pop over there and have a look at Angela and Tina's quilts. We are all so very different.
I was away last weekend, and now have a pile of bindings to be sewn down, so hopefully I'll have a few more finishes for you soon enough.
I also got several quilt tops done as well, this is the Purple Kaffe quilt top. Now awaiting quilting. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. I've got a few ideas on the quilting too.
My little challenge quilt, took on a new persona after several baths of soda ash solution and procion dyes. The final results are very different.



I prefer the back to the front, I love how the dye has been drawn by the thread, both the machine quilting and the hand quilting.
Work in the morning so that's all for now, I'll be back soon!
