One done and one to go

Monday night was my guild meeting and that's when I pick up my finished quilts from the long arm quilter, and pass another top off to her. I'm always excited to see what she has done. So on Tuesday I decided I should get the binding put on the quilt I picked up the night before and I should get the binding on the quilt I'd picked up the month before--- I'm running a bit behind here.

By Wednesday, I cleaned off a decent sized space on my table and trimmed both quilts, and I was able to sew together a binding for one - my Dazzling Debbies. Ta-dah!



I spread the quilt on the floor in my foyer and then took the picture hanging out over the banister. (you probably shouldn't do this but it is too drizzly to go outside and I wanted to get the whole quilt in the picture) Anyway I love how it came out after it was bound and laundered.



Nice and smooshy!



So today I figured I'd finish up the second quilt - my yellow Carol's Stars - but when I came downstairs this is what I found.



I didn't have the heart to wake him up so, this quilt will get bound another day. The weekend is just around the corner and I hope that you and I both have some quality sewing time.

Happy stitching-

  5. Well it doesn't get much better than that! I've got a crush on that gorgeous quilt and I'm thinking your sweet cat has the right idea. He knows a good thing when he sees one.

  6. Lovely quilt. You are as bad as me not moving the cat from something.

  7. Beautiful quilt. Having only made one, I am truly in awe of quilters and all the work that goes into one. I would love to do a few more but stitching, and Buddy training are all I can manage at the moment. Can't wait to see the next one.

  8. Your quilt is just beautiful! As soon as I finish up a few more projects, I'm going to start pulling out some fabrics to make mine. I can't wait! :0)

  9. Your dazzling Debbie quilt is beautiful. It must be fun to see close up too with all the characters in the fabric. Aren't animals funny? It doesn't matter whether it's a dog or a cat, they want to be where it's soft and clean and smells like Mama. I put one of my wedding quilts in a bedroom closet to keep it nice. In fact, I hadn't used it yet even thought I'd been married 20 yrs. (I don't know what I was saving it for) Our pregnant cat came up missing one day and when we found her, she was nestled with three kittens on that quilt.
