I headed to the basement to make progress on my quilts today. The local guild, the Covered Bridge Quilt Guild is hold their bi-annual quilt show next weekend March 21 & 22 at the Bureau County Fairgrounds. The hours will be 9am to 5pm Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday.
This pattern is Pink Patches Doll Quilt by Kathleen Tracy in her book The Civil War Sewing Circle.
It is all custom quilted.
The quilt below is called the Framed Ladies Wreath. I purchased this kit on the I-80 Shop Hop quite a few years back. In the shop, this quilt was framed in a beautiful antique-looking frame. Whether or not I will frame it is yet to be seen. So this UFO is almost finished. I will be sewing down the binding and adding the label on the back.
Today I made the two bindings on the above quilts, the two bindings shown below and seven labels framed in fabrics to match their designated quilts. I had to laugh at myself today. In my flurry of trying to finish many projects today, I made a binding that didn't match the quilt it was intended for. So maybe, haste makes waste? So that unused binding will end up in my 2 1/2" strip drawer.
You can see my tutorial on making labels HERE.
Today I am linking up with.....Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday, Freedom Fridays, and Crazy Mom Quilts.
Hope you are enjoying great Spring weather this weekend. It was 65 degrees and sunny here. The dogs enjoyed laying out on the deck. I opened up the house to air things out.
Yours in quilting,
