WIP Wednesday!

WIP - Works in Progress.....

Today, I am at that loverly point in a quilt's life where you have to make a decision about the binding. The top is all hand quilted and just needs binding and the label. I will be digging through my stash to see if I can find some fabric to bind Dear Sister's Baby Strings quilt. It's really scrappy, so I'm thinking I need to do a scrappy binding, or maybe I should just do blue. That would set it off nicely. Maybe I'll just audition a few pieces and see. If I can't find something I love, I may have to run to the LQS and find something. I'm sure Dear Hubby is thinking, "You have plenty of fabric, just find something you already own!" LOL As soon as Dear Sister gets her baby quilt, I'll post pics.

Cheryl's PIF Challenge Gift is completed and is going in the mail today. It's sad to see it go, but, I know it's going to a good home. To a home where it will be loved and appreciated! When Cheryl lets me know she's received this gift, I'll post a picture.

I still haven't made a decision on the little 30's pin cushion, but I know it's not going to be a pin cushion. I am leaning toward putting some borders on it and making it a mini quilt. I can admire it that way and it will be finished! I really don't need another UFO, and if I pretend I'm going to make an apron, I'm sure I'll end up with another UFO!!!!!!!

And just so you'll have a picture to look at, here's a mini quilt I made for my Younger Daughter's purple room, using Dear Sister-in-laws hand dyed fabrics!

Happy Quilting and thanks for stopping by my little blog!

What an adorable wall hanging. Perfect for a teenager's room.

The mini quilt is beautiful. I am sure it will look great in her room. I think a wall hanging will do the 30's pin cushion material justice.
