They don’t come often, but they are very welcome when they happen.......... quilt finishes. I finally quilted and bound Bruce’s banjo quilt.
It finished out at about 55x68”, a nice sized throw. The back was the orange ombre cotton from Riley Blake Fabrics that I found in the thrift store (an entire shrink-wrapped bolt worth). To that I added some fat quarter solids in oranges, red and blue down the back. The binding is the Kona blue.
This is my Goal #2 finish for the 2015 Finish Along with Adrienne of On the Windy Side.
I have got more finishes to show, but they all need to be in individual posts for the Finish-Along rules.
Tomorrow I have my granddaughter Lauren (age 11) coming to visit for the day. We will do some sewing and baking and who knows what else. So I may not get around to posting again until Tuesday.
Blogger/Google has really messed up my blog, and in checking the Help and forums, I see that it is a widespread problem due to some updates. A lot of my sidebar stuff is gone, and I am in the process of reconstructing it. Must get the CQI (Crazy Quilting International) link and logo back up, plus my Etsy shop link and some other things. While I was working on that, I installed a new blog template because I was sick to death of the old one (which is still on my Etsy).
So, I will be back to you in a couple days!
