Confession time: I hate binding quilts. I know, I know, I've probably mentioned it before, and I'm not the only one out there who feels this way, but my case is extremely severe. See these lovely finished twin quilts? They were meant to be my daughters' birthday presents... two and a half years ago!!! Talk about belated birthday gifts, huh?!
One of my oldest and dearest friends just had her first child, and plans a "muted rainbow" theme for the little girl's room once their current renovation work is completed. Now, you probably know "muted" it not really my color palette, and I had nothing to go on since the room isn't set up yet, but when I saw a fellow Late Night Quilters Club member's similar quilt using these Flying Colors by Momo fabrics, I figured they read about as muted as I could envision and plowed ahead ; )
After a crazy spring and hectic summer, I'm finally back in my [new and improved] studio! (It's becoming a rite of passage that the longarm has to be moved at least once and at least up or down one flight of stairs in each house we live in.) So in an effort to clear out clutter and get back into my sewing routine, I've been pecking away at my mending pile and various UFOs the past few weeks. It's paid off: my husband and kids are all happy to see their missing pants/shirts/stuffed animals again, a favorite old blanket has it's binding back on it, and I can walk around without tripping anymore!
