I picked up my 6 quilts from the LQS yesterday. The owner did the binding on all six of them for $190. Way less than she told me it would cost me. Here are some pictures of the machine binding she did. They are awesome. She wanted to hand bind them, but I told her I needed them in a hurry and they were never going to be judged, so just machine bind them. Here they are:
This is my Civil war block of the month quilt. It is king size. She did a flange on the binding. You can see the blue with red spots on the binding and then the red strip just inside it? That's the flange, the red stripe. That's her binding. I love it. This is going to my husband for Christmas. It has wool batting. It will keep him "oh so warm!"
This one is awesome! I love that word. I know they used it in the 90s. Overused it. But it says what I mean. And the long arm stitching on this matches what she did to her machine binding. It looks like dashes ----- like that!!
This is one of my favorite quilts. I am not giving it away. I am keeping it. I don't know why, but I love the colors and the boxes. It was easy to make and the fabric just speaks to me.
There is only one that I can't take a picture of and that is one I gave to my ex-older brother. He refuses to believe I am even alive. The day my dad died, he thinks I died also. He won't take my calls or reply to my letters. So I am dead to him and I can't get a shot of the quilt I gave him - he probably donated it to Goodwill anyway. Oh well, such is family life.
So, I'm busy with Christmas and my son coming home, so I won't be writing for a bit. I received one email from a participant from the quilt kit giveaway saying she received my kit. One gal wrote and said she hadn't received her's yet. Oh, the postal office. I hope you all get yours today. Merry Christmas!
