I've finished the binding on not one. but two quilts this week. The first to be completed was the kiwi I spy, I used a black on black, with a silver fern design, and I think it looks perfect. I'm very happy with the way this one has finished.
Next I tackled the batik table cover. I went digging in my batik collection and came out with this piece. It's not actually a batik, but it seemed right.
It was the first and only fabric I auditioned for the role
And I believe it works beautifully.
Another very happy finish.
I recently showed the start I had made using some charm squares.
I've made a little more progress, but now it's stalled.
The instructions said to cut the charms down to 2x5 inch pieces. Not happening!! What am I going to do with all those tiny strips of fabric? I just went with 2.5 x 5 inch pieces, which of course means I'll need more back ground fabric as everything is a little bigger!! Claire and I are off shopping tomorrow. Debbie is visiting with her daughter in Wellington and has done a little fabric shopping of her own.
There has been some exciting goings on out in our garden, but I'll save those for another time.
