Binding that is..... Yes an actual finished quilt. I have so many UFO's it's nice to get one done. Although this isn't an actual UFO as I didn't start it that long ago.
You may remember I had a little fun with these blocks - getting mixed up towards the end. But I will make more of these sometime - once you get the hang of them they are fast and easy to make.
Here is a close-up of the border fabric. Isn't it just great ? I have always had a thing for owls and when I spotted this I had to get it. When I was quilting I stippled around the owls and trees as I wanted them to stand out a bit. I am keeping this for me. It will be a quilt to snuggle under when I'm reading. I have quite a bit of the owls left so this will be popping up in my scrappy quilts for a good while.
I recently joined Amanda Jeans quilt along where you made just one 9 patch a day. I think the total required was 70 but I decided to stop at 48. I didn't want another BIG quilt. I set them 6 by 8 and used a nice pale blue for sashing. I then pieced 528 little squares together for a border. Now that bit was boring but here is the top all done.
So many different fabrics in this - I was glad to use up a big pile of my 2.5 inch squares. It is still quite big - I'm not quilting this yet - will go in the box with the others.
Mmmm - what next ? Another UFO or something brand spanking new ?
