I decided yesterday morning that a Habitat quilting marathon was in order. You see, this weekend is my annual scrapbooking retreat. We girls have an overnighter at a local ski resort, and we craft, stay up late, and eat a lot of food. Since I don't scrapbook, I bring photos to organize in albums, handsewing, and crocheting. Remember all of those photos I mentioned in this post? Yep, that is what I'll be working on.
think hope I'll have all of those pictures organized and filed by the end of the evening, so I decided I should bring this quilt to bind. The problem? This time yesterday morning it was still a quilt top only!
That was remedied quickly. The younger kiddos and I hit Joann's yesterday morning while W was at school. We picked up some of yardage of this pretty aqua and black fabric by DS Quilts for the backing (I love that line!!), and I spent the evening and this morning at my sewing machine. Now the quilting is done! Doesn't that fabric look perfect with Habitat? This afternoon's naptime will be spent making the binding and machine sewing it down onto the front of the quilt, and then I will work on the handsewing during my trip. So that is the plan, now I better get to it!
Have a great weekend!!
PS - Yes, I finally painted my living room (mentioned in my last post) and I love it! Took several days, but it is done. That is why I am allowing myself to sew again... :)
ETA: I'm thinking this aqua solid for the binding. Yes??
