I’m quilting again!

I finally got frustrated enough to pull the Double Wedding Ring quilt back out into the dining room this past Friday. I figured even if I didn’t work on it I’d have to look at it all day LOL. Thankfully, I jumped right back into quilting on it!!

When I stopped quilting on it several weeks ago I had 8 more circles to outline and 62 flowers to quilt in the center of each circle. As a reminder here’s what each finished circle will look like

I’m happy to report I’ve finished all the circles and only have 28 more flowers to go!! Whoooopie!!

I’ve been thinking about what I’ll use for binding and last night I went into my stash to look for a solid that would match… and I found one!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, I’m so excited and relieved!

I laid this mint green fabric next to everything and although it’s not a perfect match to the lighter squares, it’s pretty darn close!!! Close enough!! Now I just need to watch a few videos about cutting bias strips for binding 😉

I really want to get back to making color blocks for Debby Brown’s quilt along…I’ve missed piecing!! I still have my Gemstones top up on my design wall as a reminder.

I’ve saved the patterns she released in June & July but I’d really like to make the one she just released for August.

That’s about all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!

Go USA!!

  1. Good to know you have your quilting sew-jo back 🙂
    I am definitely being distracted by the Olympics! American athlete Michael Johnson has been part of the BBC commentary team for several recent Olympics. His comments are always insightful and it is good to have a perspective from someone from another nation.

    1. Hi Allison, I’ve been distracted by the Olympics too! I’m a big tennis fan and that event finished late last week so it freed up a lot of my attention :-p But I’ve been keeping an eye on other events too. I’m glad you like the commentary from Michael Johnson.
