Over the past few days, I managed to get Sunny's quilt basted and quilted! I was going to hurry and finish the binding so the whole quilt would be completed today, but I decided to savor the binding process rather than rush through it. I love that I get to enjoy the quilt while I put a million little stitches around the perimeter. It's a delight!
last post...the blocks for this quilt were pieced in under 3 hours, but adding the sashing took a few hours on top of that. I certainly wish I could piece that fast! Just felt the need to set the record straight! :)
fabric shopping with a dear friend on Monday (kind of a last hurrah before school was out for the summer...) and I found this super cute Cotton + Steel print on the clearance rack. (It's from Spring 2015. The line is Lucky Strikes by Kimberly Kight. The print is called Tuesday Night Ladies' Bowling League 1972.) I bought the binding fabric, too (Follie by Lotta Jansdotter)...and turned them into a placemat for one. The backing fabric is the same.
I used scrap batting (yay!) and stippled it up, which went super quick after stippling an over-sized twin size quilt. :) (The mug is a favorite...from Modern Textiles.) The placemat is 17" x 13" and no fabric scraps were used in the making of it. Write it down! (ha!)
Hope you have a safe holiday weekend!
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
