Yesterday I worked on an Irish Chain that had stalled since 2006? 2007? A long time. Its part of the Irish Chain Challenge and now a finished flimsy--
Not quilted but it is all together! Blue is not my favorite color to work with, and I think two fabric quilts are boring to make. But two color quilts are beautiful when finished. This one is for my daughter--requested before she had three boys and a cat. I wonder how she'll keep all that white clean??
I also have a finish--Beach Party--
Beach Party is 76x100". Its a Nickel Quilts pattern. Years ago I had participated in a brights 5" charm swap and I used them in this quilt. The perfect border fabric came from 2Rs stash.
I found a coordinating stripe for bias binding and made rounded corners because I love how they look. The purple backing was one I dyed. I estimate this quilt used 16 yards of fabric. This is an OLD UFO--pre2006. The top languished on a hanger waiting for that perfect border fabric! Thank you 2Rs!
Added this week--00.00 yds
Add YTD 128.80 yds
Out this week--16yds
Out YTD 144.25
I'm ahead 15.45 yards!
Binding is a favorite part of the quilt process. I have a binding stash--
Dark bindings are sewn on during the day, lighter ones at night. Even though I have THREE lights surrounding my chair to aid me, I just can't see the really dark bindings very well.
