While I was waiting for Alice to call me on my Quilt #1 to be quilted and bound, I start on #2. I start to cutting, then piece together. I'm still using my old stand by Kenmore machine, it is great for the piecing.
It goes so quick, I finish the top in a day.
Alice calls me just after Christmas and had a few questions for the quilting. She ran into an issue because my initial cutting of strips was a bit off in one section. And we also didn't decide what to use for the binding. I decided to pay her a visit and also to take some leftover fabric from the top for the binding.
We, I mean she, came with a great solution for my miscutting. Just make the border a bit thinner.
Alice planned to get work on the quilting and binding that evening. Did I mention that she hand binds. It was beautiful on the first quilt, so I had not worries on this one.
She calls and I head over to pick up my second quilt. This one is for me. Here it is:
I love it. Bright colors and white sashing I think is my favorite. Love the green with white dot for the binding. Alice at makes me very happy. What do you think!
