I still have to put the binding on. The current problem is that I sewed the binding together, lots of black and white strips, but that was over 18 months ago and I am not quite sure where I put it but I am about to make a concentrated effort to uncover it.
The quilt is made from a black and white jelly roll and batik scraps. It was a lot of fun putting it together. The quilting is free motion and I think it was a pattern that Leah Day showed but I am not really sure.
I designed the label, obviously in 2014. I was really surprised to find it last month and have held on to it, carefully, so it would be ready for the finished quilt. I have been so offended by black and white thinking that this quilt says "there are shades of gray and lots of colors in life" so don't box yourself in. I still need to add the quilt info into the middle of the circle but it will get done this week.
Please note that this is my cat, sleeping on the deck. The interesting part is that she is sleeping right outside the studio door. I took this picture right after I jumped over the cat to get into the studio: I am right inside the door, looking down. And please note that she is still there and didn't even know that I had been there. Eric has been taking pictures for Facebook of the "37 places Stubby sleeps on the deck," but this is one that has become a favorite.
I am trying to put in a little more time on the quilting/sewing front. I have a couple of sewing/embroidery projects I want to do and a few quilt UFOs I would like to finish. And, of course, I have a couple of BOMs I am WAY behind on. I don't move as fast as I used to but I seem to have as much piled up to do as always. I guess I will either keep busy or be frustrated a lot. We'll just have to wait and see which one takes over. Gari
