Mechanic’s Quilt Finished

Too bad the socks for his wife aren’t finished! Yesterday a friend asked me to do a blog post about how I do the binding, which meant I had to do some binding so I chose this quilt.

This could be my first finish for 2012.  I can’t remember if I finished anything or not but I think I didn’t.  Lots of tops have been made, several tops have been quilted but the stack of “almost done” quilts is getting pretty tall.

Binding tutorial will be posted this evening . . if it rains!  If it doesn’t rain, I’ll try to get the tutorial done on Tuesday. Why does the rain matter?  Because if it rains, I don’t have to water the garden and will have an extra hour or so.

    Very nice! It looks so crisp — as do most of your quilts. At first I thought it was custom quilting, then I enlarged it and could see the overall pattern. But especially in the white (cream) areas, it looks like a custom design. Very cool.

    I have been fighting with a binding, so I can’t wait to hear what you have to say. I still have another quilt to do right away. How fortunate you’ll be posting soon.

    The quilt looks great and I see that you used your “favorite” panto on it too.:) Really sets it off. The colors are very pleasing for a man or anyone for that matter. I like it a lot.

    It is so true about how long it takes to water the garden! God does it so much more efficiently – almost 2 inches here since last night! Great sewing weather.

    Wow, I am so impressed with this quilt. When I first read about it and seen the drawing and colors you had picked I didn’t think I’d like it that well. But it is absolutely stunning.
