well can I just say that sewing down a binding by hand takes a darn long time!  I've spent two evenings and I'm only half way around.  I am going carefully because Ami has put the idea in my head I might want to enter it in a show.  so I feel like the quilt police are looking over my shoulder.  but still .  thanks goodness it's not any larger.

I also go the word last night that the young woman I was hemming the bridesmaid dress has been put on bed rest.  There is still a chance she will be able to be in the wedding if they can get her blood pressure down, but she can't come for another fitting.  So I guess I'm going to cut and turn that little hem on faith.  If she is in the wedding she may be sitting down, so the hem isn't as critical.   I was worried about this.  She was already so big and huffing and puffing, working full time, etc.  You remember, that usual young woman who thinks she can do everything, and a nurse to boot.  She hasn't yet learned that some times your body has other ideas.  I could tell her but I knew she wouldn't listen.  It had to be her doctor.  Ah well, life happens.  She will learn soon enough that despite best intentions, she is no longer in control. smile

I bet it is exciting that your quilt is finally on the finish line.

I do hope the young lady is able to still be in the wedding.

I've finished the 4th row in A Gathering of Quails.   One more quail row to go and then all the eggs rows that go between them.

Last week at guild, I got to take a class from Ray (of 3 Dudes).  It was an improv class using strips.  We were testing his pattern for a new one to come out soon.

I started with a Bali Pop and background fabric.  Friday I finished up my top that I started on Wednesday.

it is square.  I laughed when hubby asked what I was going to do with it...in his mind it isn’t big enough for a bed, and isn’t shaped right for a couch quilt.  Only option left is to hang it!  Lol....listening to him really made me laugh!

although, I have been thinking about digging in my batik storage to see if I have enough strips to make two more sections....

hummm......

It does look good and yes two more sections would maybe make it a sofa throw.

Well, I guess I have to dig into the stash to find strips of similar colors....

"A Gathering of Quails"

I love them.  Great job.  You have to stop calling these "Forever" projects.
