My goal was to finish two of the quilts that have been hanging out in the “we need binding” stack. I did one yesterday and one today! Yippie skippie! I was quickly reminded of how much I hate working with binding. It is simply my least favorite part of quilting.
Here’s a look at my quilts…100% finished!!!
I really really wish I had saved some of the striped fabric for the border. But I didn’t so I had to use the black fabric with little poppies. I like it. You all might not remember but this is the pattern my teenage daughter, Hannah, designed. She was 14 at the time.
Next up…the Circus quilt. I used the lime green blender fabric for the binding on this one. I like how this one turned out too. This pattern was designed mostly by mom with a little help from me.
You have to love Texas in January. Everything in the back yard is dead and brown. It looks lovely in my pictures. Don’t you think???
I did learn a very important lesson today. I really should decide on the binding fabric for a quilt while I have all the fabric in stock. DUH! I have 2 quilts that I didn’t bother to save fabric for binding and now the fabric is gone. Completely gone. So, I had to figure out plan B. Nothing like scrambling to find something to match. Or maybe I shouldn’t wait 1.5 years to bind my quilts. Hmmm…that might be a better plan.
I have a quick question for all you wonderful quilters. Do you sell your finished quilts? If so, where is a good place to do that? I’m thinking about selling the Circus Quilt but I’m not sure where I would list it or advertise it. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
