What a lovely weekend.....
The weather was great, the fireworks were beautiful, family get togethers were fun and I even had time to work on my quilts.
I made a scappy binding for my very old 9-patch UFO and completed it. I sewed several scraps together that I still had gathered for this quilt to make the binding and in one day I sewed it on by machine AND hand sewed it down.
You can see several different fabrics that I used in the binding in this picture. A picture of the whole quilt will have to wait until another time when I have extra hands to hold this queen-sized quilt up.
Then the topper today was when I got home to a package from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I hadn't ordered anything, but this is what was inside it.
A jelly roll called Bunny Tales.
Well, wouldn't you know....when I bought the magazine for the pattern Babes in Farmland, there was this one other quilt in there that I thought I just had to make.
I think this fabric will work perfectly for that.
What do you think?
I am thinking this might just be the ticket for this quilt.
Thank you Sandy for the nice little surprise.
Now to decide which UFO is next...hopefully something that I can complete in a short period of time as that gives me a great deal of satisfaction....to see something completed.
