Today was no exception.
I have had enough of the wet weather (apparently the wettest winter since records began in 1866) especially now that the sun is out later into the night. So, rain or no rain I brought the quilt I am binding out to the line for photos. I'll show you, rain. Humpf.
Right. When I realized this was the best photo I was going to get, I went back inside. Stinker.
This quilt is a small (42x42 inches) made for a little person in Mexico City. I am trying to keep it gender neutral, but it is looking more and more girly to me.
On Monday night I quilted a spiral concentric square/rectangle starting in the charm squares. It's quite organic in that each line is not spaced as the last, but generally speaking I tried to keep to straight lines. I think you can see the quilting a bit better on the back.
I have to say, this was possibly the most quilting fun I've had quilting in AGES. It's a good thing, too. This is a motif I'd like to try with Electronica some day.
With the two stripes of yellow and blue and the bold red on the back, I choose a binding with all three colors. Now, this is the first time I've used a light color binding. I usually like a dark binding to frame the quilt, so this is a small adventure for me. So far I like how it ties the quilt together, but I reserve judgement until it's finished and washed.
Tomorrow night I'm meeting up with the Galway Ladies to stitch our late afternoon away. We have to bring hand work only, so with any luck I'll have this cutie finished tomorrow night. Boy that feels good.
