This quilt has been in back of my mind for years - pale colors, pretty florals and prints. Who knew it was actually a 'low volume' quilt !! Piecing the backing was done a week ago and I delivered to the long-arm quilter yesterday. After years of making quilts for others - this will be the first quilt made just for me. I'm thinking a pretty pale blue binding - it's double stamp weekend in honor of National Quilting Day which just might mean a trip to my LQS on Saturday.
It's a different story for the quilt below - it hasn't been in the back of my mind for years - it's been tucked away, half finished, in a box for years (15+ years I think). Began before learning about rotary cutters and the importance of 1/4 inch seams. It's not perfect and the cat fabric that was so cute in the 90's is so very old -- it will probably be back in style again soon. But, it has a lot of memories stitched into it - and it deserves to be completed and used and loved. Sewing up the pieced backing and adding some old embroidery I can bear to part with - I'm thinking of quilting this one myself or maybe even doing some 'big stitch' quilting. One thing is for sure, the grandkids will love it.
