Seeing the End
I rarely work one project from start to end, so working three quilts from first cut to last stitch of a binding - that is pushing me. I really enjoyed working on these as the lovely prints and colors just worked so well with this two-block setting. BUT by the last few rows of 'cross-hatch' quilting, I was so ready for these to be done!
There were three pieces I set aside for backing and each back has these pieced in them. This wonderful border/row print was used for all of the bindings. Appropriate as it was the initial piece of fabric that all the other colors/prints were pulled from.
This gal was my challange mixed in with all of this - she LOVED the flannel (and the colors too I think). I had the worse time keeping her off anything in progess; especially when it came time for quilting. All that soft, cuddly goodness! She was scolded, shooed, swatted a few times, and even picked up and set on the time-out chair - hence the evil glare.
Hopefully the camera will be charged by tomorrow (I hate this new camera) so I can get photos of the three quilts in their finished state - and before the owner comes to pick them up.
I am ready for something NEW,
