evening at the falls

All done!

As soon as I started sewing on the binding for this quilt it practically finished itself. I know I've said it before, but I love sewing on bindings. The quilt top is complete, basically all the loose ends are sewn in, but you get to spend the time finishing by hand this lovely collection of fabric that you've been machine sewing for months. I bet that machine sewing on bindings is pretty slick and quick, but I would miss those final moments that I get with my blankets before they are given away as gifts.

You can follow my project progress here, here and here :) :) :)

I think this project turned out a lot like I had planned, but with some pleasant surprises along the way. Now I will be returning to my single girl quilt top. It's time to get to work on that again.

Last night we went to a park next to our house - Minnehaha Falls. There were lots of people out and about. The weather was perfect, the falls were spectacular. Logan loved riding around and people watching. He's really teething right now, so as you can see - everything is a chew toy.

  1. It's striking. I love the back, seeing the stitching pattern of the quilting. Little man is adorable!

  2. I always love hand sewing down the binding too. What a lovely setting to photograph your quilt.

  3. what a stunning quilt! It's beautiful, and the photos of what you have been up to lately are lovely.
