Thanks so much for all the nice comments on the progress of this quilt–I’m happy to say I got the borders on and will be piecing the back and making the binding today (I have a new resolution to make every single binding right as I finish each quilt top)! I love that this quilt is the perfect combination of whimsy and sophistication. The fabric I chose for the border is one of my favorite 12 Days of Christmas fabrics. Plus, I was lucky to find it at 50% off a little while ago!
I have a busy day planned for today–the first item of business is to clean my sewing room–it’s a disaster area, really. Then, to reward myself for cleaning, I hope to stitch together a couple of quilt backs and make a binding. I’m hoping to also cut out a couple of new projects, and then I have two quilts with binding ready to be hand-stitched if there is any time left over. It seems that once July rolls around I’m always in the mood to work on things that need finishing up–because I’m eager to start projects for fall and Christmas about then!
