And on a more cheerful note, squee! Finished things! (That are gifts, as it happens.)
Reversible table runner
We have here a table runner for my aunt and uncle; they came down for a quick visit the other weekend and I managed to finally get some binding on it and give it to them.
Below are the quilts for my cousin’s little boy and girl, which I’ve had in various states of almost finished for ages. Finally I went on a binding spree and did them both when I had a quiet moment home alone. And the next time I take it into my head to edge a quilt with black fabric, bind it with more black fabric and hand-finish the binding with black thread, I would like to have some sense slapped into me, please! It’s basically impossible to do in anything other than natural light, and even then it’s a challenge. but it’s DONE!!!
These have all been finished for a few weeks now, but I had to wait for a dry, calm, sunny day to take them out and photograph them (not to mention needing to brush all the wadding lint off the Coin Stack, which I only managed today). At this time of year, in this part of Wales, such things are hard to come by! I’m so glad to have these done and I have a follow-up quilt laid out on the floor now for a little brother or sister (due at the start of April). It’s a straightforward Plus quilt so it should be quite quick to assemble – just a bunch of 5″ squares.
(I’ve filled in the gaps and shifted one or two things around, but that’s the gist of it.) With any luck, I might manage to have it done by the time baby #3 appears and be able to give all three kids their quilts at the same time.
Linking up with TGIFF for the first time! 🙂
