In progress binding photos make me happy, probably because it means the quilt is nearly done. I’m just loving this little quilt, and I hope it will make its future tiny owner very happy!
No time to quilt it today, but I did get the top pieced. There will even be a similar-but-different doll quilt that carries on the ombre effect for the baby’s older sister.
If only my arms were longer, you could see more! The pink and green remind me of watermelon or roses, both of which are welcome this time of year.
And I always love the stained glass effect of a quilt top viewed from the back. Even on such an overcast day, it just makes me happy. The pattern of neatly pressed seams with the light filtering through is the reward of a job well done! (Well, you probably have to sew to understand that one.)
My current quilt project reached a stopping point while I waited for some fabric to be shipped, so I got a jump start on the next quilt. It’ll be mostly Honey Honey fabrics with some scrappy favorites thrown in. So far — LOVE!
I’m still working on Dad’s Parson Gray “Samurai-ish” quilt. This is the back of a strip of 300 squares that will be the middle section of his quilt. The finished squares are about 3″. Lots of pressing involved here, but I’m loving the results.
So far, I have 720 of the 960 squares sewn into larger blocks. The end is in sight!
