Lots and lots of sewing

Most of my project have finished around the same time. I quilted and put the binding on my Bundling Board. It is made with Brushed Cottons and Felted Wools and feels lovely and soft.

 
My Coxcombs and Stars, a Jan Patek kit given to me by a generous friend, came back from the LAQ and looks absolutely wonderful. I really like how Pam quilted it and after spending quite a few evenings sewing on the binding,[ it's a large quilt] it is finished too. This photo shows half of it, because it is too big and heavy to hold or hang up, I put it over the railing along the verandah.
 
 

The Message in a Bottle quilt now has it's final border attached  and will be the next one to go to the quilters'. I hope to find another nice pattern to use some more of my Taupe and Linen fabrics again.


 
and last but not least my Sutton Grange quilt has only a small bit of sewing left to be done. A couple of the corner pieces to applicate down and it will be finished too. I'm very happy how this one has turned out.

As always, amazing quilts and amazing appliqué work. I love using brushed cottons and wool, they go together nicely and seeing the taupes shows me how mine will look when I make something with them.

Congratulations Dorothy on some lovely finishes! (or close finishes) Will you send your Sutton Grange out to be quilted?

I think I still have the Bundling Board pattern. It caught my attention when the pattern first came out. Maybe I will find time some day. For the time being, I will just enjoy yours.
