Met up with my "quilty chicks" today and we did a little show'n'tell along with some eating and chatting....lots of chatting.
Here is Sharon with her lovely red and green applique. She just got it back from the quilter's, so I am sure binding is in her near future. I just love her choices of fabric. Can you see the subtle pinwheels in the big open areas. This is a lovely quilt.
Here is Nancy's quilt She is another one who chooses lovely colors and quilt patterns. I love the idea of using a large white border to showcase the beautiful quilting that one of our favorite quilters, Karen McDavitt, did for her. With the extra blocks, she centered them on the back of the quilt. I am thinking this could easily be a reversible quilt.
I cut numerous strips, cut each end at 45 degrees, sewed them together, pressed them and after measuring and finding out I now have enough binding for two quilts, it is all wrapped up and ready for the phone call telling me that my Zen quilt is ready to be picked up. Guess I will be making another quilt with my brown batik scraps just so I can use my extra binding.
Ok, onto block #8 of the Cherry Trees.
