FNWF Results

I  had 2 things organised and I was going well, then my son popped in for a visit. I don't see him very often, so I downed tools for a chat.

 I finished the quilting on the very new and early Master H's quilt.

 I made the binding, but by this time it was late. I didn't trust my sewing under the light in that room.

 So I switched to another block of my Sue Daley Square Dance applique quilt. I use a very bright light to do this. I started this one about June 2012. I got a real go on at the beginning, but other things took precedence. Still it is a good travelling project.

Don't know if I showed Miss H's finished quilt. We were supposed to drive to Gympie today with her great grandparents (my parents) for our first cuddle and to deliver the quilt. Unfortunately her big sister bought a  tummy bug home from daycare, so the visit was off.

It did mean that I was able to add the binding to the Blue Rhino quilt. Joining the ends does not come easily to me. Lately I've cheated and just stuck one end inside the other. I've had 2 problems. On one quilt I tucked too much in and turning and sewing down the binding was a bit thick. On another one I didn't tuck enough in and had to be very careful sewing down that binding. Today I persisted (read - swore the air blue) and joined it properly. I might go back to just tucking it in. LOL

 So tonight on SNWH (Saturday Night with Hubby), I'm sewing down binding.

Thank you the Cheryll for hosting FNWF. Go to her blog to see what others got up to last night.

Take care,
Cheryl (aka Kayly)

Visits by Sons are very important. Love what you got up too. The quilts are beautiful. Not long to go with the binding all ready. Well done!

Great work Cheryl. I used to struggle with bindings too but now I have it mastered - I'll send you a copy if you like. Enjoy your trip away too.
