I took some time this weekend to do a little quilting and binding.
I know I’ve said it before, but I love tacking down the binding on a quilt by hand. Maybe it’s because I know the project is almost done. But I find it much like knitting… mindless and therapeutic. And when you’re done…
You’ve got a practical, usable work of art! While I have a great time coordinating fabrics for quilts, true scrap quilts will always have a special place in my heart.
And as you can see, this one has A LOT of scraps. There’s a total of 48 blocks, that’s 384 individual geese blocks. It seems like a lot, but as I made them as Leaders and Enders, this one was built without me barely even trying! It’s a nice size too… about 68″x78″, perfect for a twin bed, or an extra layer for a double.
For the back, I had more of that fabulous yellow fabric (super clearance bin find). I know yellow is not everyone’s cup of tea, but to me this would be like waking up to pure sunshine every morning! And I’ve got a fair bit of it left too, you’ll see this fabric again!
