A Quilting Day

Buzz Saw quilt is on hold for a bit. I need to figure out what I can use out of my stash for the final borders. I initially thought I had something that would work but after taking another look....nah, I'm not feeling it; besides I wanted to quilt today. I got my civil war center nine patch quilt on the frame and started quilting. See that border? Well, guess what? I don't have enough fabric for the binding. Sound familiar from an earlier post? Well, it's my story and I'm sticking to it. Since the quilt is scrappy from leftover civil war prints than I'll make the binding scrappy too.

Bindings are the final touch and statement on a quilt, looking forward to seeing what you choose. Your hand quilting is wonderful.

I'm a non-blogger...I guess that means I am a lurker? Anyway I really like your blog, and your quilting inspires me to do more. I appreciate all of you who DO blog -I live in a fairly empty rural area, and my one sibling lives on the west coast (I'm on the east coast.) Your blog gives me a chance to see what other quilters are doing, and learn more! Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Soo pretty! I think a scrappy binding will be perfect, even if it wasn't the original plan.

I love scrappy binding! I have a whole drawer of leftover pieces and I always pull out colors and add them together for my scrap quilts!

That quilting is fantastic too!

This looks amazing...so you could teach me how to do this?! I think you have a natural talent and I would be all thumbs! Have a good weekend. Natalie

What a pretty quilt! I love seeing how people make quilt patterns "come to life" with their fabrics.

This is a quilt pattern that I may want to try.

Congratulations!

That is a beautiful quilt. What about some red fabric that is in the border as your binding?

This happened to me too last week. In the end I used a different color binding on my scrappy quilt. Scrappy bindings are pretty too.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I don't think I have ever visited yours before but it is wonderful and I'll visit often. I think I've become an enabler with that Country Living quilt kit as many people have said they were considering getting it but then went and did it when they saw it on the blog. I guess I'll have to start a support group!

Sheri Howard said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am all about scrappy, and I LOVE scrappy binding!!! I get such a great feeling of accomplishment when I use scraps and my stash and don't have to buy fabric for every project....I love your "Tisket" block, so cute in wool....I am thinking about doing two, one in pastels, and one in wool. Thanks for sharing!
