Sew, stitch, snap, SHARE

It’s been a busy week, including spending a day putting the binding on my “Saigon” quilt!  Yes, another finish for the year….well, almost, it just needs the label.  Carol did a wonderful job with the quilting.

It’s such a big quilt; I need a couple of extra people for a good photo, but here’s one of it on our bedI decided on a scrappy binding, and while I was cutting for the binding, I cleared up the fabrics in the bag that were used to make this quilt.  Sizable pieces, once a strip was cut for the binding, were sorted into colours and put back into the Fabric Library.  Smaller pieces were cut into 5″ squares, 2½” squares and 1½” strips and stacked into plastic containers.  This is a practice I hope will become a familiar routine after completing a quilt (well, one can but hope!).I used my favourite wideback to back this quilt, choosing the grey colourway from Tula Pink’s “Freefall”.and for the label I’ll use a spare block, writing the information in the white sections and then appliqueing it in place.  Shouldn’t take too long to do……..just need to find make the time to do it!

Linking up with Linda and Julie for Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE.

    Wow – this is looking fabulous. When you do a scrappy binding, do you sew straight seams or angled to join all the strips?

  2. Your quilt is stunning!!

    It can be hard to get a good photo of a really large quilt, can’t it? I think putting it on the bed works well though and it looks lovely. I like your label approach a lot.
