Last night I hand-stitched the binding on this quilt. While it isn't my usual kind of quilt, I do love it. Some wonderful woman had sent me a pack of Turnovers as a swap hostess gift and I pieced the top from them.
Rather surprisingly, I had almost a half yard of one of the fabrics from the line -- I'd bought it for another project, and it was enough to do the binding.
This is for a little girl who is to be born in mid-January. I hope to see her mom within the week to give it to her. The family is Vietnamese and the picture of this little girl's brother is so cute; I just know she is going to be adorable.
My granddaughter has formed a rather serious attachment to a stuffed Very Hungry Caterpillar. She calls him Charlie and never leaves home without him.
On Monday I had a flashback to having seen some VHC fabric and began an on-line search. Not only did I find fabric, but found a design, and all of the fabric precut, for a very reasonable price! I phoned the shop and spent some time talking with the nicest woman who said she did have a kit and would get it out in the mail to me that very day.
The kit came today. The fabrics are great. The directions are clear. I'm certain I can get this quilt made, tied, and bound before December 25, even if I'm binding on the 24th.
And the shop is called Tennessee Quilts. No affiliation, yadda yadds, just a super satisfied customer who would buy from them again in a minute!
Okay, now to the cutting table.
