Almost two sides of the binding for Diamonds are Forever are finished! I don’t really mind sewing down binding too much but after doing almost one whole side off and on yesterday my left thumb was hurting a little bit – I don’t sew with my left hand so it must have been the way I was holding it. So hours and hours more of hand stitching to do – ok not hours and hours – but awhile!
I am taking a step back from Williamsburg Beauty – I haven’t liked how the Ohio Stars are turning out – I have tried several more and the stars just blend into the background too much – no matter which choices I chose from this bundle it is the same – I have come to the conclusion that this bundle just isn’t working for that particular block. I will think on it a day or two and decide on a new border round for this point of the quilt. I still intend to use this fabric – just in a different way – and I still intend to make this quilt larger – and surely I have some fabric I can blend in from the stash!
Surely there is enough some place on these two walls to blend – right!
Half way done with the first row of Winter Wonderland – join in at Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday – I intend to.
