Many of you participated in the Primitive Gatherings Triangle Gatherings sew-along last year, as did I. I put together most of my blocks (there are 98) and just got it back from my fabulous machine quilter, Sandy Lachowski in Bend. I had an 8 hr drive back home this week from our cabin and spent the time sewing down the binding. It's a king size quilt, so it took be the full 8 hrs to get it done! No wonder I like sewing bindings down by machine!! It wasn't going to work on this quilt, so I did it by hand! VBG
I had to lay it down on my driveway in order to get the whole thing, although I still cut off the corners. My binding is scrappy; I also did the borders in differing fabrics, as are the setting triangles and cornerstones. It's a truly scrappy quilt! I put it on my grandson's bed this weekend and he loved having the quilt on his bed~ you may remember that he helped me sew some of the blocks last year by following the diagrams and arranging the half square triangles in the proper configuration.
I also was able to finish more of the little freebie basket blocks from Primitive Gatherings.
When I returned from the cabin, I was also able to pick up my mail containing the fabulous little basket mini quilt from Janet O.
Those tiny tiny baskets are all of 2" finished!! Aren't they amazing??!! Just beautiful. I hung it immediately next to my computer so I can admire and marvel at its beauty all the time. And those feathers??!! WOWZER. Just love it. Thank you Janet O, again. I don't mean to forget either the fabulous soaps she included in the package.
