Whoop! Whoop! 10.2.2015

I finally finished the binding!

Whoop! Whoop!

This poor little quilt seems like it's been waiting for weeks for me to hand sew the binding part and now, it's done!

I used the *double hour glass* set for this quilt which was made from leftovers from this quilt.

I quilted it with the Mozart panto by Jodi Beamish.

Here is my pieced back - I also used up the leftover blocks.

WIP Wednesday 9.23.2015

I quilted down the last of the black and white with a little red quilts today. I thought while I had the Mozart panto out on the table…I might as well finish it up! :)

The quilting went really quick even if my bottom border was a wavy one…think I will need to *brush up* on my border sewing technique….

pattern info: blocks made using the strip tube method, my source here.

quilting info: Mozart by Jodi Beamish, one source here.

What I'm Working On...

I pressed the leftover from this quilt

…to make this quilt.  :)

I added a couple of borders to bring the size to approximately 45 x 62.

A nice little quilt for a little one!

Road Trip Friday

The Quilt Expo 2015 with Nancy Zieman was this weekend!

I decided to make the one hour drive to Madison and check it out. I attended one lecture about *Garbage Can Quilts*.  I was hoping to get more ideas to use up scraps but the lecturer follows Bonnie Hunter's Scrap System and showed a few of her Bonnie quilts.

I'm afraid I didn't support the vendors very well with this trip. I only came away with a bottle of oil for the long arm, some clover wonder clips and the Quilt Expo 2015 t*shirt. I was looking for the Walk-About pattern but I guess, I will need to order it online.

The quilts in the show were beautiful, as always. They are way above my skill level but I do admire the beauty with every stitch.
