Broken Stripe Nine Patch

By | April 10, 2020

I had lost my binding mojo. This quilt has been by my chair in the living room for almost 2 months waiting for me to finish binding it.  Strangely I don’t mind hand binding once I’ve got going doing it. The problem is I find myself reluctant to pick it up and start working on it and I’d bcome really good with that on this project.  Finally this last week I actually picked the project back up and worked on it during some teleconference calls where I had to listen more than participate and then sat for an hour or so on Thursday and had some nice quiet sewing time while I finished the last little bit.  It’s nice to call this one done.

We tried taking a picture of it on the back deck but it was so windy the quilt didn’t want to stay still but I did get this shot of the backing material which is a nice soft cuddly flannel.

This one is destined for charity, probably the nursing home once things settle down, or should I say life gets more active!

    It’s a fun little quilt! I love hand stitching bindings and right now I wish I had a stack to do! I may need to find something else to work on since it seems my quilt making is not happening much these days!

    I have been doing a lot of handwork during my teleconferences too! I wish I had a stack of quilts to bind but I’m sure I’ll find something. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF.

    I like that setting. I’m with you on delaying binding. I feel the same way about the final Kirchner stitching and weaving ends in on socks that I knit.

    Well done! I know the feeling with binding. We want the quilt finished, but sometimes it’s too hot to have it on my knees for hours at a time. Yours is finished now, so congratulations. Thank you for linking up to the Peacock Party.
