This quilt (Moonlight by Gerri Robinson in her book "A Cut Above") is made with French General fabric and has been back from the lovely long armer Vicki Jenkin for weeks! Finally I found my box of left over FG to cut and sew the binding.
Its such a treat to have a lovely quilt to hand stitch binding down at night, when its still cool enough to want a quilt on your lap. The weather has warmed up but a lack of rain has caused me to hold off planting much in the garden, and I have had to start hand watering it is so dry.
Having said that it was freezing cold over the weekend and I just hid in the house as much as I could. I have been frustrated for months that I couldn't find anything in my sewing nook so I attempted a clean up. I moved fabric from box to box, upended cupboards, whined about the lack of space and project boxes and made a big mess. I say attempt, because I am so easily distracted that when I found some projects I stopped cleaning up! I did some unpicking and sewed borders on two projects then dumped them both in a box that I promised myself would be my go to UFO box. LOL will see if that makes a difference in finishing UFO's!
This mini cake stand quilt (12") was not a UFO, just a favorite orphan block. I added two more rounds, quilted it minimally and put the binding on. While I think it deserves more quilting then it received, I am happily calling it a finish for now!
Happy quilting Sue.
