When I was off last week, I finally put the binding on my pink star quilt. I put this on with the sewing machine and I am pretty content with how it turned out.
My next quilt to finish will be this double star quilt:
I love this one, but I had no reason to finish it because it did not match anything in my home. Now I think it looks wonderful with my new sofa. It will be perfect to snuggle up with this winter. I plan to hand quilt this one, so I had better get busy as it will take quite some time.
With the warmer weather, I am embracing my pastel floral living room. The burgundy slip covers have been removed and the pink star quilt that I just put the binding on has found its summer home.
I made this one to match my sofa and love seat. It was a very detailed star quilt with the tiny center star being an exact replica of the large star around it. I almost cried after I ruined it by machine quilting it. I am a terrible machine quilter! After it sat unused for over a year, I finally came up with idea to add a second backing and add ties to hold it together. That worked wonderfully to hide the hideous machine quilting on the back. I am now happy that I can display this one without shame.
I won't be posting for a few days as I will be spending time at a mini family reunion. I hope you all have a great weekend. May all our gardens be filled with rain water! I don't know about you, but we desperately need rain.
