I've been working on my quilting, all the live-long day! Well, not really. Actually, because you ladies love fabric almost as much as I do, much of my "live-long" days are spent filling orders. And then, there is the cooking, the cleaning, the grocery shopping, the laundry. And well, now that I think about it, I must really love quilting because somehow, I still found the time in the last couple of weeks to:
finish the binding on this quilt:
It's ready for the washer and snuggles. And, I got this quilt (that I made for Studly Husband) loaded on the rack:
I once heard that the Amish intentionally put a mistake in their quilts because only God is perfect. I must confess that I've never had to "intentionally" put a mistake in a quilt -- they seem to come naturally for me. I call them my "Amish Touches", and I had a biggie on this one.
I swear I followed Carrie's instructions on this quilt, but some how my quilt ended up being about 6" to 7" bigger on both sides??? And, even if it weren't for that, I still goofed and didn't buy enough backing. Oops--a nice big Amish Touch-but at least it's on the back.
Anyhoo, it is quilted, and the "Lonely Quilt Tops Club" is now down to six members:
The binding is sewn on the front, and ready for hand stitching to the back.
And, my "A Tisket A Tasket" blocks for April are cut -- just need some applique and embroidery!
Any "Amish Touches" that you'd like to confess?
