Yesterday I got busy



I finally got to work yesterday and did the binding on these two (yes two) quilts, I have had them quilted for ages, and they just sat there and waved at me every so often to remind me to finish them. Well yesterday they finally waved hard enough and they are done. I machine stitch the binding to the back of the quilt and then use a fancy stitch to sew them down at the front.

The top quilt will go to my Son in Tasmania to be raffled/ auctioned, I am not sure which it was now. The pattern for the cats came from here, it was last years free BOM. The irish chain was my way of fitting them all in together. It is a lot brighter in real life.

The Black one is all Scaps, and out of my head, sort of made it up as I went along.  I went through all my bits and anything that was 2 1/2 inches or bigger went into it. I had so many I did the back as well. To be honest I am not sure whether I like the back or the front better. The back is the one with more black. It was a bit of fun (not) to get it all straight on my frame so that I did not miss any of the colour, but it all worked out fine in the end.

Love your Crazy Cats! The black one is interesting and I can't decide if I like the front or the back best. Love the abstract value in it.
Cheers,

Fantastic work as usual Marg. I love the black one - front and back.
