Oh wow, it’s done! And it’s Friday so I am going to do my first ever LINKUP with Amanda Jean!!
Rainbow Animals is bound and ready for a trip through the wash and dryer to get it perfect.
Don’t have a picture yet though – really did just finish it ten minutes ago. Ta-done!!
Edited to add this!
Feels like back on track again. Chose, made, and attached the binding for the rainbow animals quilt. I dug out a piece from stash that I had bought a few years ago. At the time I thought it might be good as a binding for that other fabric I’ve got…. and it was!
I only bought .35 (what an odd amount!) and it was exactly enough. And perfect too, both colour and style-wise. So the binding is attached and I remembered to leave a bit extra of the batting and backing to fill out the binding. I think I’ll hand sew this one, mostly because I’ll need another hand project for tv watching and boring meetings.
Finished the last corner on my big stitch hand work project. I think I want to fill in the centre bits, but I’m debating moving down to floss so that it wouldn’t be as thick. Still deciding about that. Whatever size I use I will just be doing a random fill stitch, much like what Tim Latimer does on his whole cloth quilts.
Haven’t chosen binding yet for the rainbow animal quilt. Or trimmed it. Today was kind of a crap day anyway.
I crammed some sewing in today, almost last minute but not quite. Let’s just say dinner was a bit late tonight. I sewed all the verticals on the rainbow animal quilt, and that leftover 40wt variegated worked beautifully. Marked and stitched all the horizontals after kid bedtime so now I can officially say Ta-Done!! (That’s like ta-da, only MUCH more satisfying).
Tomorrow I will trim it and choose some binding. I have a few potentials in mind I think.
I’d like to sell this one so I’ll look at both the commission fees at my LQS and what an Etsy set up would entail. A new blog AND and Etsy store in less than one month!? We shall see….
Hooray for finishes!
