I have had my lupine quilt back from the long arm quilter for a couple of months now. Finally, this past week, I had the time and energy to get the binding made and sewn on by machine. I don't usually measure my quilts before I cut the binding. I tend to just cut the number of strips that looks like the right amount--usually, I am pretty accurate doing it this way. This week was no exception and I had 7" of binding to spare when it was all on.
I pin basted my 36 patch Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt today. I now have three quilts pin basted and I have officially run out of basting pins. I hope to get this one quilted soon. I will just be quilting it with straight lines in a diagonal grid through all of the white squares.
Finn has an eye infection so he is wearing the dreaded cone this week. He has eye drops from the vet and it is clearing up nicely so the cone should be gone soon. Finn wants you to notice the red leaf on the ground...He says Fall is here.
