Backings and Bindings Continue





I found this purple and blue batik for the binding for the Scrappy Squares Quilt.



Cut and sewn on  - it looks pretty good  - added it to the growing pile of hand sewing.



I cut and sewed the binding on the Blue Moon Quilt too.  I had already planned to use the same fabric as the inner border.   I finished quilting it except for the inner border which I will have to do on the Bernina.


This is a donation quilt that I cut out awhile back and sewed while at the beach with friends. It is a very easy pattern called Greek Cross that is available as a 12" block on Quilter's Cache.


Saturday at the Bee, I bought 3 yards of this very pale lavender with white roses to use for the backing of this donation quilt.  I ended up choosing a red binding that I had already made.  Another top ready to quilt.



 I later went back and bought the rest of the bolt of the lavender fabric  - it is much prettier than it appears here  and it was a good bargain too.

It is good to get these little chores done.

love the lavender with roses for the pinky donation quilt. what fabric is the outer border for the blue moon quilt. I like it looks like iteration of Kaffee in grey. You are one busy girl. What will you do in the small sashing for quilting????
