Day 3 Slow Sunday

Today I'll be finally getting the binding on this quilt. 


I had started this quilt last November, a year ago and did get the top finish but just with all the has been going on with Mom, I just folded it up and put in the closet.





Then over the summer I took it out of the closet and to the quilter Had him just do an all over loopy pattern, nothing fancy



Sometimes I know just what fabric I want to use for binding and other times I just don't have any idea.
First thought was to go with a green to just blend in but couldn't find one that I like. I was afraid that red would be a little too over powering of a color even thou it was the color used on the pattern but now that it is on I believe it will work.



But before I get sewing down the binding plan on getting some more mowing in and sewing up the pillow cases. I would like to have them done in time to have them in the mail tomorrow.


Also been making great progress on the Spicier Life CAL.



Have the main body of the afghan done and I'm now working on the border.



Just 2 more rows to go. Who knows I might be able to finish it tonight.

  8. Those meandering loops were perfect for this one, and I really like the red binding! You've reminded me of a Christmas top I pieced two Decembers ago, and I'm going to go pull it out so I can start making its borders. :) Thanks!
