“Hello in there, hello”

Hello, friends. Are you wondering where I’ve been? It seems like ages since I published a post. The good news is I finally have something quilty to post about:

It’s been six weeks since I made the binding for my ’30s reproduction quilt, Vintage Vignettes, but I didn’t actually get the binding sewn on until yesterday. This morning I joined the loose ends of the binding to complete the final seam . . .

. . . and sewed the remainder of the binding in place.

Then I started tacking down the binding on the back, a process I really enjoy:

As soon as I arranged the quilt on my ironing board to take a picture, Coco put in an appearance:

Her right paw is on top of the spot where I starting tacking down the binding. I always like to start near a corner to get the first of the mitered corners out of the way. So far I’ve stitched seven inches. Let’s see, now . . . this quilt measures 80″ x 92″. That means I only have 337 inches to go!

    It’s such a relief to know that others have “quilts-in-waiting”!! Coco must have decided she needed to help!
    I love the colors of the quilt and the kitty!

    Love your blog, looked in the archives and found your scattered stars quilt. Purchased a few pieces of the Penny Rose cheddar and indigo, but none of the light ones. I have found 1 of the light ones in the UK, however, they want $25.00 for four fat quarters. Keep inspiring – your work is fantastic!!

    Coco is ever so charming but with more passive-aggressive tendencies than any person I know!!
