A Finished Quilt During My Mini Vacation

I finished binding this quilt a week ago, and completely forgot to share the pictures.


Usually, with a quilt like this I would have chosen white fabric for the bias tape, but this time I wanted to do something I normally don't do... and you know what? I think I kind of like it.


Since that last procedure was canceled and we had to reschedule it, I have been working on some projects. I am going to be able to share a couple of the projects soon, and some not so soon, but I am enjoying this little "vacation time" from the procedures.

I miss having you all for my link parties on Wednesdays, but I decided that it is best to take a break until this medical craziness calms down. I don't know exactly how long, but probably a few months.

Having said that, what project is making you happy? What have you been working on?

  1. I like the colored border and I like that you're on a mini vacation. :) I just finished my daughter's valentine's dress tonight; well, technically it still needs a button. :)

  4. That quilt is really really cute. My daughter and her grandma have been making a quilt for my daughters bed. They are ready to put boarders on it and then put the batting in and quilt. although I think they are going to end up knotting it like a comfort. My Mom doesn't quilt and my daughter is not too into stuff that takes too long.
    Did you quilt this by hand or do you use a machine?

  6. I assume this is the little twister pattern? Have not kept up with quilting since I picked up knitting needles.
    I ♥♥♥ knitting these days. Most any time a can let these wondrous yarns slip through my fingers, I'm a happy gal.
    You are in my thoughts daily.
    hugs
