... the finishes all happen together. I've been busy making binding, sewing it on and doing the hand stitch thing to secure it to the back.
The 'Swedish Boy' quilt (for want of a name - total blank here) got a binding of the charcoal I used as the background fabric.
I really think this geometric pattern works well for a boy. I hope the particular boy it is meant for thinks the same.
The Wee Wander quilt I have no worries about the Swedish girl liking. I am quite sure she will point out to her brother that her quilt is prettier. She knows her own mind and I like that. Wee Wander got a scrappy binding made from the darker pink fabrics I had of the line.
More boxes ticked. Good, because the weekend is full of parties to be attended (not by me), dance lessons, in-laws coming over and being fed, and a dance exam. And I've got to move all the sewing stuff because the in-laws requested feeding. That is going to be the hardest part of the weekend - moving all the fabric and WIPs to make room for seven at the dining room table. I know I have to do it for Christmas but I still had more than a couple of weeks before that clear up happened. Sigh.
Bravo - a lovely pair xxxReplyDelete
Today I bought a Christmas tree which I now think requires us to move everything out of the lounge to accommodate it!
Great finishes. Its a pain having to give up your sewing space for one meal....at least its summer here and I can request a BBQ outdoors!ReplyDelete
Wow you're on fire with these finishes. I had our dining room table cleared for weeks. Now the sewing machine has not only been restored to it but joined by my large cutting mat! lolReplyDelete
Perfect girl and boy quilts! Hope your nerves stay steady this weekend! JxoReplyDelete
I love the first one the best. It's simple yet gorgeous. I love the colors you picked for both. Very nice finishes!ReplyDelete
Good work! And it is too bad about those hungry visitors, but I suppose it might get things nicely organized, my sewing stuff sure could use that.ReplyDelete
Fabulous quilts, the recipients will be thrilled. Hope your weekend isn't too stressfulReplyDelete
Thanks for showing the boy quilt finished - I've loved it from when you posted a photo of the completed top a few weeks a go. Hum! My sewing space in the living room is going to be taken over by the tree next weekend - I'm hanging on to the space for as long as possible...ReplyDelete
I love both quilts! Good luck with the sewing moving (are you sure it's too cold to eat outside?!) and hope the exam goes well xxReplyDelete
Love both of these quilts Susan, one so pretty the other so bold.ReplyDelete
I love both quilts! I bet the kids will love them too!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous quilts! Well done on two gorgeous finishes that will be very much loved!ReplyDelete
Great duo, and hope the feeding and watering of the weekend was successful, not to mention the rest of the listReplyDelete
What a great Swedish pair - particularly like the boy quilt and am sure he will too!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the fabric moving!
Both quilts are gorgeous. I'm sure they will be loved!ReplyDelete
Well done on the finishes in time for Christmas (and then some)!ReplyDelete
