The binding is moving along quickly on the Postage Stamp quilt – give me another day and it will be done but I won’t be washing it until Tuesday probably – storms and lots of rain this weekend and I need to run to Little Rock again on Monday – this time for the car, no surprise the air bag has to be replaced on the drivers side and they can get me done on Monday morning so after that I will hit a few stores and then head home before rush hour. I want to wash the quilt – toss it in the dryer for about 20 minutes then lay it on the porch someplace to do the main drying as I do not want it to shrink much – so hopefully we will have nice weather on Tuesday so I can get the quilt done. Three and a half sides of binding done as I wrote this last night. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting.
The four side borders of the mustard yellow is done and I started the patchwork on the borders now on Murrieta Stars – I know some of you have said this color is “cheddar” far from it in my opinion which is fine with me because the color a lot of you refer to as “cheddar” in quilts is a color I don’t like LOL
One side done of the patchwork, three more to go and then one more border and I will measure it and the backing fabric that I have and see if I can make it a tad larger and still have enough fabric left over for binding. I couldn’t get the lightening right for this one – well try again this weekend as I get more of the borders done.
I ran across an interesting blog post from a blog called Kameleon from Western Norway and this article was so interesting I thought I would share the link. It is for an international quilt festival in Russia. It is an interesting festival and such pretty buildings in the area too.
Also if you have heard the winners of the Paducah AQS Quilt Show have been chosen and not surprising the top 4 hand quilting awards go to Japan where they have excellent quilters.
