Melanie's Home

My Melanie Wilkes quilt came back from the machine quilter today and she is looking very, very nice.  I had hoped to have her back in time to get the binding done during the Olympics.  That's pretty doubtful at this point, but it won't be a whole lot longer until she is done.  You can see her as a flimsy here

I couldn't remember if I'd cut binding for her already (I hadn't) or whether I had fabric designated for binding.  So tonight I dug around downstairs and discovered that I have enough of the same fabric as was used for the backing and can make the binding out of that.

There's a serious rumor of additional snow Near Philadelphia come Thursday night.  Which could mean a snow day from school on Friday.  If so, guess what I'll be doing.

It's a very pretty quilt and so close to being done! Hope your snow day comes through for a three day weekend.

I love Melanie Wilkes. And I love your quilt, too. Can't wait to see her all bound up! Should we be wishing for snow?

I love the colors, which suit the Olivia DeHavilland version of Melanie. It's a beauty! Hope you have a snow day to work on it.

Looks beautiful, cannot wait to see it. Now about that snow, it is now moved to Weds night into Thurs. I can tell you I am so over winter. Will most likely be doing the same as you needle and thread in hand.

I love the quilt and the fabrics and colours you used. I always adored Melanie from Gone with the Wind.
