I finished up sewing the binding on my scrap basket quilt on Veteran’s Day. While much of the country was already getting hit with cold and snow from “The Bering Bomb” ours was not due yet and the afternoon was nice and mild…though quite windy. I had to keep waiting for breaks between the wind gusts to get a few shots :) The back is scrappy, as is the front. The shadows are from the crabapple tree.
Couch or Lap-Quilt or Bed-Runner Size. Top row : Hand pieced and appliqued. Middle and bottom: machine pieced. Binding : hand. Quilting: hand.
A few shots indoors and I am glad that I am done. I started hand quilting around the end of June, picking it up to work on here and there. I finished the quilting on October 31st and since binding is not my favorite thing to do, I took my time on that.
It’s a cheerful little quilt. I enjoyed working on it and trying out different hand-quilting on the various blocks :)
