I finished the binding about 10 pm.
(Thus the crappy photos.)
I can't decide which one is worse...this
In the true spirit of the Gee's Bend quilters, I made this mostly out of jeans, khakis and shirts. (Most of the navy was new fabric picked up in remnant bins.) I love how it turned out. I love that I was able to recycle most of the materials for the top and come up with this.
The beauty of it shows through the pictures, not to worry! I love the simplicity of this one. Sometimes I think reusing stuff like this is almost more fun than buying new (almost!). By the way, I am really loving hand sewing stuff these days (embroidery, trim, etc.) so I think sewing the binding would be my favorite part too.ReplyDelete
I can't believe you finished the binding in just one day! I really like the pattern of this one.ReplyDelete
Love it!!! You rock on the recycling too!ReplyDelete
wow! you are speedy :)ReplyDelete
You would laugh if I told you what I managed to sewing (by hand) last night while sitting in bed :)
Again, so impressed with your talent and creativity. I LOVE that you used jeans, khakis + shirts!
It looks great.ReplyDelete
It's beautiful, and heavy, I bet!ReplyDelete
Gee whiz, you're fast!!!ReplyDelete
It looks beautiful! I love it.
Yeah for getting it done! I like the simplicity of it. I've made 3 quilts so far with recycled fabrics and they were so much fun to make.ReplyDelete
Just beautiful. You certainly were quick with sewing the binding down.ReplyDelete
looks great! I have that same fabric as the binding I think.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to try it out with you, but it looks like today is out of the question-- too yucky!ReplyDelete
Wow! It is beautiful.......how accomplished you must feel to have used all recycled material!ReplyDelete
Woman, you're a machine!!ReplyDelete
The quilt looks great. I have bags upon bags of scraps. I need to take this inspirations and start whipping up some quilts.ReplyDelete
It looks wonderful and you finished that binding some quickly! Impressive:) I also love how you recycled other stuff to make the quilt!ReplyDelete
that turned out so fabulous!!! way to go!ReplyDelete
Everything about this quilt is great - from the fabric remnants that you used to the inspiration behind it to the final presentation. You are amazing!ReplyDelete
Yay! It's beautiful. Do you have a spot for it?ReplyDelete
Nice to be done, huh? I am getting something done on my quilt too.ReplyDelete
