Binding Weekend

There was not much crafting going on this weekend.   I did however manage to create the binding to put on the T-Shirt quilt I finished.  The center bar of blocks are swimsuit blocks.  The person was a synchronize swimmer.  This is a pretty large T-Shirt quilt.  So large, I can't get a good photo of it without it bending and waving on the banister before I ship it out.  

I machine sewed down the binding to the front and then hand stitched to the back.  I'm so glad I finished that this weekend!  I'm surprised how much I like sewing down the binding.  I'll just sit there and sew until I"m finished. That's a good things because I have two more quilts to be binded that I squared up this weekend as well.  It's the Moda lap quilt and the finished UFO in the recent posts.

I did get a chance to review the Farmer's Wife block book an it's definitely something I'd be interested in.  I just need to wait and see how things turn out this week with dh's appt.  I'm already behind in my two BOM's so I need to catch up there as well.

Finally, I also cut out a bunch of circles using my AccuQuilt Go.  I added them to the mock denim Cathedral window quilt.  It's coming along nicely.  I precut a bunch of batik fabrics as well to go in each of the circles.  I'll take some photos of that for an update tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!
