I quilted it back in May. It isn't bound yet....more about that later.
The ladies that were here today had all their pieces ready to put together, so they got a lot of sewing done. There are just 2 different blocks to make, then when you put those blocks together, you see a different pattern as well.
Kim is making hers as a baby gift, it has colorful dinosaurs all over it. She has a cute dinosaur border print that goes with it too.
Don't you love the dots? Dianne said that was all she could see when she looked at hers, but I think the pattern shows up well too!
Two of the students couldn't come today, so I am looking forward to seeing their quilts too.
I have decided that I am going to have to have a binding week or a binding day every week or some way to get bindings done on my quilts. Sometimes I am in a hurry to get a quilt hung on display for class, so quilt it (it looks so much better) but don't bind until later (this is one of my excuses). Most of the time I sew the binding on both sides by machine as it is so much faster. I even have the binding made for three of them. Does anyone else have this problem? What do you think? binding week? a day every week to bind? I don't actually know if I could stick to a day a week, but I need to do something and get them done!
I went to the Omaha Quilt Guild's Quilt Show with friends yesterday. It was fun and inspiring to see so many pretty quilts. I took some pix so will post some later. Lots of great vendors too, though I managed to keep my wallet in my purse! We drove up to Country Traditions quilt store in Fremont, NE afterwards and I did buy a few fat quarters there. It was a great quilty day.
