Binding Is Done

Granny’s Got Style, LeMoyne Stars – Star Garden

Granny’s Got Style is done!!  now I have to wash it and dry it.  Then it will be photo taking time.  Until then – here is the binding.  Linking up to A Quilting Reader’s Garden today & Confessions of a Fabric Addict  and to Crazy Mom Quilts and one more! Prairie Sewn Studios.

Melanie was over last night for supper and she had on the cutest necklace that she made with her tiny stitching – she doesn’t like getting her photo taken so here is her necklace – I told her to put her finger by it so you can see how little it is.

Here are the Lemoyne Stars with the empty blocks filled in.  I don’t want to take hours and hours quilting this quilt and I’m not sure if this will be all that will go in those blocks or not – I might go back later and put more in but for now this is it.  I know I feel this way because I usually put in quite a bit of quilting.

Another angle.

I think this is the fabric that I will be using for this easy quilt that I showed yesterday.  I have had this stack on my shelf for a couple years now – time to use it – I have white for the white squares.  Time to do something light and easy.  I know log cabin blocks are easy too and need to do those for the winter wonderland and I will, I’m just not sure when I will start.

This is the name of that fat quarter bundle.

I was looking at the Pioneer Woman’s post yesterday morning and she is showing all kinds of food that is going to be in her newest cookbook and while I am looking at it I’m wondering how much of it does she eat LOL – how much does she exercise – because I know if I was cooking and eating all of this stuff I would bloat up like a balloon – love the look of a lot of it though – and those crackers at the end of the post would do me in, I would eat them until they were gone.

I had a couple of you interested in the La Passacaglia book and papers I am waiting for an answer from the first person and then will let you all know if it is still available.  EDITED: 1:20 PM – a trade was made with the second person that inquired and the book, templates and papers are now on their way to their new owner – have fun Maria!

    Hooray for you, another quilt completed!!! I love the fabrics you selected for your next quilt. I have quit reading or watching Pioneer Woman. Her food looks amazing, and what I have made from her recipes tastes amazing, too….but it is far too calorie laden for us. We are senior citizens and definitely aren’t as active as her family is working their ranch. I hope they have good arteries, ’cause they get lots of butter!!! It has been fun, though, watching her family grow up.

    P.S. Those crackers she shows were served at my quilt group several months ago…..they are fantastic!!!! Addictive!!!! Oh why did I look at her pictures – now I am drooling???!!!

    Your quilting is coming along nicely on your stars. Love her necklace! She should sell them. 🙂

    I don’t have one of the Pioneer Woman’s cookbooks … I’ve seen enough the few times I’ve watched her show to know that I can’t serve her food here … I’d weigh 350 lbs. in no time! ha! But her food sure does look delicious!

    I love your little sneak peek of GGS … I can’t wait to see it washed, dried all nice and crinkly and on display.

    What a lovely necklace Melanie made! I’m looking forward to seeing the grand reveal for Granny’s got style Karen! The stars look great, it would take me much more than hours to quilt them. Reveille will look great done up in that fabric bundle. Whoop Whoop for you! 🙂

    Oh just start the log cabin already! LOL. I keep thinking today is the day, today is the day! I know too easily amused.

    I was reading back in old emails. I started reading your blog in May 3 years ago. Wow! Yours is still one of my most favorite blogs to read, Keep it up!

    That little necklace is amazing!

    I think that you have elves helping there….you sewed that binding on lickety split ! 🙂

    I love the binding on your Granny’s Got Style and how exciting, starting a new project! The Lemoyne Star is exciting, too — it’s always such a magical transformation when those first quilting stitches go into a flat, new quilt top and it starts to become a real, live quilt!

    Love dots for binding – they make a quilt sparkle. Look forward to your photo. That’s a great stack of fabric also. You’re moving right along with your Lemoyne Stars. I, too, wonder how she can cook so much and not get a little plump, but I do read her posts and she does a lot of walking, not that I know where she finds the time. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone – it’s so fun to come and see your progress.

    The necklace is beautiful. Binding gorgeous and quilting in the stars looks great too. You are very prolific. Perhaps you could share an example day with us so that we can see how you organise your time to do so much… I am recently newly retired (early I add) and I need to get into a routine which allows me some ‘me’quilting time. Xx

    Hurrah for the binding! And I’m with you on Pioneer Woman’s food, it all looks and tastes amazing but it’s a make it very occasionally food around here – we don’t have quite as active a lifestyle as her family!!
