and no Project Runway to look forward to this evening! A chilly but sunny day here in my part of WI. We had a hard freeze the past two night, and my outdoor plants are officially done! The blue baby bows quilt is finished. Not sure what my camera is up too, but in reality, the binding is the same blue as the border. It sure looks gray in this picture.
I got the 42 blocks of this one sized over the past few days, and began making the rows this morning. Again, I have no idea why this one is out of focus, while the ones before and after are just fine??? Gremins I guess. Or maybe an early Halloween Trick or Treat??
Last but not least today, a very, very old UFO. It would be complete if I would just get busy and quilt that last border and attach binding. When I began quilting it, I quilted the background with a 1/4th inch grid. There isn't much background after all, and the majority of this little quilt was already done in 1991! Which is an amazing 17 years ago!!! How do I know that? Well, in 1991 I toured Ireland with a friend, and this is the hand stitching project I took with me. There is a picture around here somewhere of me sitting on a wall outside a pub in Co. Kerry, stitching on this little quilt. These days the idea of quilting with black on black is daunting, but I've decided to "go for it". And then search out something to bind it with *VBS* Long enough already, right???Oh yes, for the record these little bows are hand pieced and finish at 3.5".
