Binding Week

Mostly bindings happening here this week. Getting all those PhD's finished at the retreat gave me the motivation to move some "quilted and waiting on bindings" to the finished pile.

I worked on the hand stitching of this one at the retreat. It's now done and checked off my UFO list.

This one is the twin to one that I assembled at the retreat. I applied and hand stitched the binding this week. It just needs a label before it is gifted.

This one is a Quilts For Kids and the strips were 3.5" and there were only 17 or 18 strips, which makes it within the 40-50" requirements for our local Quilts for Kids Chapter. They require stitching the binding on the machine, so I stitched it with a zig-zag for durability.

This is a little NICU quilt for Old Tippe Quilt Guild and it's 30" square. I'm hand stitching it, but I may give someone a call to see if that's ok.

 Here is another Quilts For Kids strip quilt that Karen and I assembled at guild Wednesday evening.

That's all so far. I'll be back working on Mabel tomorrow morning.
Tonight I'm going on a bus with my company to the Indianapolis Indians game. Should be a fun night!

All lovely...but I love the first one and the one with the clips on the binding....great colors.

Wow! Just read the last few posts you did. You were highly successful at retreat. Good for you. Maybe I'll bring things that are further along next retreat! On the other hand, I think I am a slow sewer. Could be because I have to clip all my threads after every seam. Yikes, time consumer!

You are really on a roll. Really enjoyed the quilt show again -- here and at retreat. I really like so many of your designs and patterns. You are one prolific quilter. Was great meeting and getting to know you better. I'm off to a wedding this weekend, so got to get back to customer quilts today. Stay cool.
