Murrieta Stars is official finished – other than washing/drying and a label that is. Finished in time for our 40 hours or so of temperatures below freezing. Now we will see how warm it keeps us and do we still need a second quilt on the bed.
Multi-color binding – I love doing binding like this and using up more of the scraps. I have plenty still left over and need to look it over and see if I will make some pillow cases or save it to mix with more flannel from another kit that I have. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation.
And quilting started on Handful of Scraps – not a lot but a start. The thread is a King Tut variegated thread with colors from black to orange to yellows and greens. Simple diamond shape cross hatching in the neutrals and the flowers and diamond shape flowers in the center will have more outline type of quilting.
I think today I will bake a loaf of bread to help keep the house warm and a fire will be in the fireplace – actually already is! It is cold out there!! Other than exercising it will be a sewing/cooking day I think because even if it is cold outside I go to the fitness center to get in my exercise.
Now that Murrieta Stars is finished I need to look quilts over and see what is next to get some work done on. I will wash the quilt in a couple days and take more photos of the crinklyness of it after washing and drying – measure it and see what it finished off at. I can tell you I started to piece the top in April 2017 and here it is done not even a full 9 months later! I usually do not move them to the quilting frame that fast. I’m patting myself on the back here!
