Quilt Size: 48" x 60"
All I have left to complete on my Ladybug quilt is the hand stitching on the binding (I love to hand bind my quilts). How do you bind your quilts? I learned from This Video by Connecting Threads. No tools required!! I know that everyone finds what works best for them and I really like this method.
I really like the backing fabric. I couldn't decide between a white fabric with red flowers or this luscious dark fabric. They were both beautiful, but I like the dramatics that the dark fabric brings.
Another project I've started is Hands to Help Charity over at Sarah's Blog (Confessions of a Fabric Addict). I've chosen a 'net' pattern by the fabric designer Thomas Knauer. I discovered his fabric line when I was making Miracle Boy's Quilt.
I didn't use any of Thomas Knauer's fabric for this charity quilt, just some pretty purples from my LQS.
It was also my Niece's 22nd Birthday and we celebrated this past weekend! Wait, did I say 22nd??!! My little Petunia was just a little one yesterday and I was putting pretty petunias in her hair. (*wiping a tear at how time flys). She loves Star Wars and I found a sweet tote in Moda's book Fresh Fabric Treats. It was my first time making my own fabric buttons!! Loved it!
Tiny Aprons for their dish soap bottles and then they'll be off in the mail. :)
Have a great Wednesday!! - Little Mama Hen.
