So, what have I been up to today? I finished putting the binding an quilt label on this little Easter quilt for one of my granddaughters, I performed day 2 of the Couch to 5K (can you say sweat?? UGH!!), I took down part of the grands swing set, cleaned up the kitchen and now we are getting ready to eat lunch and head to the U Dub....University of Washington for those not from around here.
As you can tell, I used a scribble scrolling type of stitch round the inner binding...I am getting a bit braver in my free motion quilting. I used a deep purple binding with tiny gold flecks to follow the gold in the outer binding himself.
I had to break down and go to my local quilt shop to get some binding fabric and settled on this springy Eastery floral fabric in pinks, purples and blues. I say I had to break down because while I have lots of fabric scraps, fat quarters and chunks in my collection, I don't have very many larger than a yard pieces and this took about a yard and a half.
Have a blessed day!
