Ready for Binding

This time last week, quilt had only a couple of rows of quilting that needed to be done.  There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that it would be finished by the middle of the week at the latest.  The quilting was done but the binding still isn’t done!

Road to Llano

Today I will get the binding done.  Monday, this quilt will be in the mail. I sure hate letting this one go but I know my friend will love it and I made it for her so . . off it goes to cheer her up.

Some day I may make a third one . . bigger . . so it will fit our bed.  Not now though . . some day!

    Your colors just make this quilt bounce. One of these day I would like to make this one. I know you have blogged about color but it still doesn’t soak in my thick skull. Thing I like least in quilting is picking out the fabric. Thank goodness for friends.
    Enjoy your visit with your son and family.
    I’ll be at a quilt RETREAT next week.

    That quilt is certainly a beauty. I can understand it will be difficult to part with. But I’m sure your friend will appreciate and treasure it always!

    I know I’ve said this before but here goes again! I love this quilt more each and every time you post a new picture of it’s progress! Your friend will just love and cherish it.

    Love that KY blue, hint, hint. Any way I could be your friend and get one like it? I DO have MS, and that would be so nice to cuddle up under when I’m having a really bad attack and can’t do anything but lie around wishing my exploding head would just do it and get it over with. Reality check here, it really is a beautiful quilt, and the colors are so beautiful together.

    I really love the pattern…. trying to think of other color combinations and how many possibilities.

    Gorgeous! I did print out the instructions, hoping to get to it, but too many quilts came in for quilting and, since that means a paycheck for me, I didn’t get to start. Maybe next month, but then the Road to Brenham will be up, and I like that one too!
