Nicole

Fresh from the dryer, bound and ready to go to Milwaukee:It's a good thing, too, since her birthday is July 30. I started and finished this one in no time at all.I found some packages of ready-made quilt binding, so while the binding is thicker than what I typically go for, it was really very easy. I think one of my favorite parts of the entire quilt is the one green corner.
This quilt isn't very large, but I'm hoping it gets used while on the couch, or as a picnic quilt. Nicole and Max go to a park and listen to jazz with a bottle of wine pretty frequently. This one is surprisingly heavy, because of the home dec fabric on the front, and the yellow on the back is also pretty thick. It killed my fingers while binding, especially with the dense stippling, but it was so worth it.
I've also just added the final borders on to the Carolyn quilt and will be basting it shortly. It's really coming together, and I'm liking it a lot more.

  3. Wonderful birthday present for Nicole,
    Rachaele Thanks so much for the lovely giveaway package that arrived today in my mailbox. The squares are scrumptious to look at and I love rick rack- especially pink. The square buttons are too cute for words. One can never have too much thread. It was a wonderful set of quilty things- I will have to see what I can create with the charm squares.
    I have placed a link on my new post- I hope others will come and visit your blog to see all your wonderful projects.
    Thanks again.
    Warmest regards from Western Canada,
    Anna
