I had an exceptionally good day yesterday. I pruned two quilts, made binding for three, and applied binding to four out of the five that were in the queue.
I already had binding made for this one:
This is the one I made out of a selection of favorite batiks and hand dyed fabrics. I'm calling it Precious Gems. It will finish at about 60" x 76."
I had to make binding for my Macabre Medallion and F2F2 quilts. I used a solid black on my F2F2 quilt.
This one is slightly larger than Precious Gems, about 66" x 88."
The wedding quilt and Macabre Medallion required a trip to my Local Quilt Shop. I found a leaf print for the wedding quilt:
That lighter print makes a nice contrast to the dark border print. Up in the left corner you can see a bit of the backing print. This one is 60" x 80."
I thought I was going to use a black tone on tone for the Macabre Medallion. Instead I found the perfect faded plum!
This is quilt about the same size as the others. Can you see the spiderweb James quilted into it for me?
Obviously the first one I'm going to focus on getting stitched down will be the wedding quilt. I mentioned five quilts; the fifth one has been pruned but I couldn't find anything in my stash that worked for binding. Back to the LQS! In another rare turn of events, I'm planning to keep three of these five quilts for my own use and enjoyment. There's a first time for everything!
