Ready for Binding

Primary Colors

Quilting is done – I did six lines in the ditch going down the rows of the signature blocks to kind of tie it all together and you can’t even see the stitches from this photo.  The binding has been cut, sewed together and pressed.  I will get it attached today.  All clipped in place and I barely made enough – I might have to sew one more small section on it so I can get the two ends sewed together neatly – we will see.


See – barely long enough!  I have enough left over (barely) to make it a little longer.  I just have it clipped loosely in place though so a couple more inches might be at the ending by time I get done.  I am linking to Esther’s Quilt Blog today.


Melanie and Aniya came over for a visit after she got home from school – sitting in the shadows here on the deck so the photo is a little dark – she was getting a bit tucker out – long days now that she is in kindergarten.  I made a small batch of chocolate chip scones that came fresh out of the oven shortly before they arrived – the rest went home for Melanie and Ric to share over coffee.


The maple tree is turning colors – looking pretty – we have not had cold temperatures but some of the trees are beginning to turn colors anyhow.  By the end of the week it might be in the high 40’s at night – I look forward to nice crisp cool days and nights.


Golden Rod


I got the vine all appliqued on Fall Harvest but forgot to take a photo – I think I will lay it out and start to scatter the leaves that I have ready out on it and see what I need still.  I’ll take a photo for tomorrow.



(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

      I’ve been told it doesn’t take her long to take a nap after getting home from school

    Love the quilt! It sure seemed like a fast project, and I like those now and then. I am still plugging away at a quilt I started June 1. It took 3 weeks to quilt the center and now I am making log cabin blocks for the border. I foresee another month of work, but it is looking good so far. The problem is that I’m itching to work on something else. Must restrain myself!

      sometimes easy is fun – I like a challenge though so have to have one of those going all the time too

    I remember K storyhour in the afternoon-those kids would just fall asleep on the storytelling rug!
    The quilt looks great-Susan

    The maple tree is so pretty, your yard is getting to look like fall. I don’t know about those 40s though, a little too cool for me, lol! We’re still in the low 70s at night and in the 80s during the day. Primary Colors is so pretty with the binding on. I’m looking forward to seeing the photo of the leaves on Fall Harvest. The chocolate scones sound delicious.

      the maple tree is the only one looking pretty right now and it is not in sight of the house – too many other trees block it – it is on my walking area though. I like high 40’s to mid 50’s weather – grew up in the north you know and this southern fall and winters are something I have never really liked – if I am going to have fall/winter I want it the whole 3-6 months not one day here and there – you can’t get used to it that way!

    Such wonderful times…she sure is gorgeous! School does make them so tired. Your quilt is beautiful. Binding is my favorite part!

    • Karen Oct 3, 2017

      she is spoiled of course as she spends so much of her time with adults with no children around – glad she is in school now to form good relationships with kids her age.

    • Karen Oct 3, 2017

      yes she is a beautiful little girl – she is like another granddaughter in a way even though she is not related by blood to me – she is my son-on-laws great niece – she spends a lot of time with my daughter and her husband

    Hi Karen,
    What a pretty quilt. I’ll bet it’s for Aniya?! She looks so tired sitting in that chair – like she can barely chew. I hope the fresh scone (YUM by the way!) perked her up a bit. ~smile~ Roseanne

      no the quilt isn’t for Aniya it is being made for a raffle fund raiser for the county library were my daughter is the children’s librarian. I made Aniya a quilt several years ago. She was kind of tired when I took that photo the other day.

  • Elana goldberg Oct 4, 2017

    Lovely quilt. Scrappy binding is so authentic, even in all one color. Yum! Any chance you would share the scone recipe!?

    • Karen Oct 4, 2017

      I need to be reminded how to get my recipes in the file here on the blog and hubby (my web master lol) has been too busy to show me – I hope to get to it sometime soon and then will get it on here – it was a keeper)
