Quilting is done on Murrieta Stars – 97 hours of hand work, now on to the binding. I unpinned it from the rails and spritzed more lines out that I had missed and hung it over the rails to dry over night and then Saturday I got the binding on it. Now ready for the hand work.
On the floor in the living room where I was trimming off the excess on the sides. The color on this one and the following are much closer to the actual color.
The binding all pressed and ready to go.
The back closely matches the front but a different design on the fabric but the same line of fabric.
Getting the binding on. This big nice cutting/design work table sure handled this quilt well.
Took a couple more photos in the living room and the color of the quilt shows up so much better in there for some reason. (I do have daylight bulbs in the sewing room so it isn’t bad lights)
A very rich color and not a hint of green to it like some of the photos in the past have shown maybe the wood color of the wall clashed with the color of the quilt – and that isn’t next to it in the living room? I will be linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and working on this binding. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework .
You can certainly see how much smaller Handful of Scraps is than the quilt that just got off the frame. This was a pretty easy quilt to get on the frame and didn’t take much time at all. I really am trying to refrain from quilting for a day or two – don’t know how long that will last.
A close up – the line on the wall right above must be a reflection of the led lights that are now on the underside of the rail that goes across the frame to hold the notions – it isn’t there really. If it isn’t one problem with taking a photo in here it is another!
