Both of my projects are sequels to other projects. What can I say? I like to use up all the fabric before I move on. The third quilt is one that finally came back from the long arm quilter (never machine quilt when you're up against a Sicilian or minky) last Saturday and I put a fancy binding on it. (It's just a regular binding.)
1. Another Rural Jardin (I still laugh and laugh when I think about seeing that movie poster on "30 Rock" after wondering what the heck they were saying for all those episodes - hopefully more than just Ashley knows what I'm talking about) Double Wedding Ring! This time I did a runner with three rings, the "diamonds" are dark blue instead of red and the back is my second favorite fabric maybe ever:
See if you can find the little scrap in one of the arcs that happens to be just a horse's bum - I didn't do it on purpose, but I think it should be my new signature.
I almost always fall in love with any toile. Except that pea-green and black, too-busy one I saw at Broadbent's the other day.
I'm thinking this table runner could be reversible.
2. Speaking of reversible, my Mom requested a summer table runner, so I used some more A Breath of Avignon to make this:
There are three more flowers, but I thought I'd keep Mom in suspense for another day. Also look at the back! It's one piece, but I would totally use this as a runner:
I did a "real" binding (all except the hand sewing) on this one and the double wedding ring table runner. I love how it looks. Also, the daffodils are finally blooming around here:
3. And now for the baby quilt that I did a fancy binding on and made sure it was all ready for my visit to Kristi and her new baby only to forget it when I went to see them. BAH. That is my way. ("Always here are the Queen's ways.")
I also took pictures of this quilt, then I erased them on accident, then I had to take them again.
Sure the binding is flowers and the baby is a boy. Just trust me that this sweet little baby is going to be dressed up like a princess by his older sister and having flowers on the binding of this quilt is the least of his concerns. :)
