Monday Making

Over the weekend I did what a lot of quilter's did - worked on my geese units for Bonnie Hunter's 'Ringo Lake' mystery.  There are melon, peach, pink, dusty rose, orange, and I think even a few mauve.  BUT that doesn't matter as it is variety that will give this such interest.  BONUS - that bag of scrap Kona white was used up!!  There are more bags of that - they might be Kona white or snow, or Moda Bella white or oyster, or CT white, or......  Again, it doesn't matter.

Monday is for making and Earlene got her last stitches done, border attached, and sandwiched for quilting.  I found a scrap binding in the drawer just the right size/color.  Her coat buttons will be real little buttons attached as part of the 'quilting'.   She gets her big finish today - why did it take so long?

And as long as the machine will be in quilt mode - this jelly roll quilt will get it's finishing touches today.  I don't have a binding for this one, but I'm sure I can find something on the shelf to compliment.
