Finishes ...

Although I joke about laying around doing nothing all day long, it's hard not to really. I have been busy sewing on bindings. These are my finishes so far...

This is the African Challenge quilt, do you like the batik backing?

I've been working on this Stack 'n Whack quilt for a couple of years, its nice to have it done at last. The backing is a Kaffe Fasset I got at a show at a real bargain price! I love its vibrancy, don't you?

And finally, my Amy Butler quilt from the Old Red Barn Sew Along. The soft blue backing was just so right for the fresh front. With Lime binding to finish it all off. This one's heading for my bed in the very near future!

The plan to do these bindings whilst I languished in bed was great, except there was one great flaw in the plan ... I failed to get out the matching threads ready! So my very dear friend Jean had to pad down and out to my sewing room, rummage through the chaos to find the threads so we could match them up. Just a minor hitch, but one I shall learn frm nevertheless :o)

I'm working on quilt number 4 at the moment!

Happy Quilting!
