Bad winter weather prevented a timely birthday celebration, but for once, I was ready!! Completed the binding on my favorite sister's quilt at 2:00 am the other night. Here's the proof:
The Big EZ Pattern
A lovely design, but a stretch for me :) As you may know, I specialize in small things! To paraphrase Mother Teresa:
"... we can all do small things with great love ..."
Larger things usually leave me ... well, with a UFO! (Unfinished Object in quilting parlance)
Very EZ design aside, this was an accomplishment for me, but I had help in meeting my deadline. The piecing was fast & fun. I varied from the design when I ran out of large pieces of fabric (I tend to over indulge in fat quarters - not yardage!). But, the real joy was turning it over to a wonderful friend who happens to be a longarm quilter! Selecting a quilting design was a delight - how can you go wrong? We decided on "Popcorn" in the end & it turned out wonderful. Thank you PJ! Got a few tips on different binding methods from the quilt expert & I took over again. I really enjoy hand sewing - popped in a movie (pun intended) & was done in no time at all. The party was rescheduled for tomorrow & best of all, I'M READY!! Happy birthday & I hope it gives you the sweetest of dreams!!
