Yay! I finally finished the binding on my Scrappy Irish Chain quilt. I quilted it back in March or April before the move, but just didn't find the time for the hand stitching of the binding.
I would have loved to have another "photo shoot" outside on my porch, but it looks like this outside today:
It's been this way for 2-3 days, with no change for the next 2-3 more. Not complaining...we needed the rain and the cooler temps are refreshing. Plus my porch is full of debris from the roof repair...they aren't done, so I haven't bothered to sweep up.
This the best I could do this morning for pictures...the lighting is horrible because the house is dark from lack of sunshine! This quilt is a large queen, so I had to climb the stairs to get a full picture. Of course, Smokey was right behind me, by the time I got the camera and walked up the stairs, he made himself comfy.
A little better picture on our bed...but you just can't see the full thing. I'm going to look for shams or darker pillowcases. We generally don't use shams...but I think in this case, it needs something...
This quilt was entirely a leader/ender project from Bonnie Hunter's book "Adventures with Leaders and Enders." I so enjoyed this project, I could definitely see myself making another!
A little closer of the quilting. I love this quilt! I would say it's my favorite...but I say that about all my quilts! :)
