Binding For A Finish!

Yes friends, better late than never...
I've finally bound the layer cake quilt I was working on back in January... it even came back from the quilter just after Australia Day!
Heaven knows what took me so long, I usually can't wait to sit & do the bind.

Anyway, here's a Tah-Dah for you
 The pic just above is my favourite print in the collection... dark chocolate background with bold colours... yum!

The inspiration for this quilt came from Anorina over here. It is shared on Anorina's TUTORIALS page. The fabrics are Sanae 'Oh My'.
It's a soft & squidgy quilt, perfect for a cosy autumn evening on the sofa.
Feels great to have it fully finished - finally!

The Jewel-y Brights Quilt has been waiting for a few months for its binding too, so while I'm on a roll...
I'm a slow binder (maybe it's because I'm usually catching up on recorded The Bold & The Beautiful eps while stitching?!) but every length of thread gets me closer to a finish!
My Retreat Quilt is due back from the quilter late next week, but this time there will be no dillydallying with getting the bind on that one!
 
Thanks for popping in... have a great day

Hello Anthea,

Love the backing fabric on your quilt, well done on getting the binding on. Can't believe that you watch B&B. You will enjoy snuggling up with this quilt, perfect timing with the change in temps.

Happy days.
