I have completed another item on my Q1 FAL list. Woohoo! I took my Briar Rose quilt along for the drive to Hastings and tried to hand stitch the binding down while Laura Jane drove. Theoretically I should have been able to finish it by the time the three hour drive was over, but apparently my multi-tasking skills of sewing and talking do not work so well in the car. I did get it done before we departed for home again yesterday.
Lo and behold, something about quilting and binding it turned this into a quilt I liked. That was a relief! It's still super busy and will never be a favourite, but that's okay. I do like the feeling of satisfaction when I complete a project.
I used Object of Desire yardage I had lurking around for the backing, and an assortment of solid colours for the binding. I think I like the binding the best, or rather how it works with the rest of the quilt best.
Moments after finishing I handed this quilt over to Judith for her Bee Blessed charity in Northern Ireland. The charity will gift it to a family in need and this quilt will be keeping a baby warm soon. What better use for a quilt can there be?
