and as we speak I'm stitching the binding on another.
We have had a bit going on personally lately in the old circle of life with a Golden Wedding, 21st Birthday and a funeral in our close family so I haven't got much done, which I kind of anticipated here, but these quilts have been hanging over me a bit, so it's been really good to have the deadline of the Finish Along
I made a backing using two extra blocks and good old Ikea Nummer print
I was pleased with the binding which is a Carolyn Friedlander Architextures crosshatch.
I quilted a grid along the low volume crosses then a simple free motion square spiral for two rounds of each coloured square. Once I wash a dry this it should be a bit more textural.
I have three quilts to gift from my months as part of Cherish Circle and I think one will be going to the Women's Refuge, one to the Hospice and one to the Night Shelter locally, where they should add a bit of cheer.
