Quilting Equals Sore Fingers

quilts

Smile that is right —- sore fingers strikes again.  I have been quilting way too much!  X Marks the Spot now is down to just needing the binding!  Thank goodness another one almost finished.

I will be looking through scraps later in the next day or so and see what I have for binding.  Very little fabric is left over from this quilt top so I will have to pull something else or go with the cream – which is very likely what I will do.

    Your quilt looks lovely, the motive is sweet. Fingers will heal while you enjoy your finish. Wonder what maybe next!

    I hope you can piece together something for binding….maybe mixing the colors with the cream. Actually, I can picture the red/orange(?) on the binding. Gorgeous!!! Fingers definitely deserve a rest!!!! Hugs, D

    Sorry to hear about your fingers but boy, your stitching is so neat and all the stitches look the same size that it has to all be worth it! Did you order your new metal finger tip thimble? You need to cover those fingers so that you can keep quilting so we can ogle over your hand quilted quilts.

    Beautiful! Your stitches are so lovely and even. Binding is one of my favourite things to do – there’s something so meditative about stitching it down.

    Beautiful quilt! How do you hand quilt through a pieced back? I always buy a backing that is large enough so I don’t have to quilt through seams in the back. Also I love the piano keys. I am going to do that on the quilt I am working on now. Do the keys need to be a certain size or can I make them any size? I have never done the piano keys before so any advice you can give me would be appreciated! I know sore fingers hurt but I always think of them as a good sign!!! I have been able to quilt!!!!
