After three days of quilting, today I put the binding onto the Welsh Jellies quilt. I could have had the quilting completed yesterday, but chose to watch the F1 GP, the time wasn't totally wasted, while I watched I tidied and buried the quilting threads I had so far and this morning I finished the quilting. Just before lunch I had time to make and apply the binding.This afternoon I'm sat below the window, listening to what you see here, while I tidy up the last of the quilting threads,
and close up the binding, I'm not quite half way done with that. I can think of no better place to be today, with howling winds and lashing rain,
curling up under a new quilt is a good place to be, it's getting it's first official snuggle test. As you see I had not quite enough of the rose bud fabric for the back and had to subsidise it with another fabric, but that's ok; I think they look nice together.
In between rows of quilting this morning I also talked to my sister in law Lee on Skype, Hunney got to talk to his bro too. Hi Guys. (Waving to you) I sent them a link to the blog so that they could see what I'm up to. In just 54 more days I'll be on my way to basking in NZ sunshine rather than yucky British rain.
1) An excuse to stay home and sew.
2) Almost finished.
3) Somewhere cosy to sit.
