A FINISH AND A START


I got the binding on my "Etchings" quilt.  I used the tone on tone grey.  It was either that or the red, but I thought the grey would be more subtle.  This line is so pretty.  I may have to scoop myself a jellyroll depending on what future projects I decide to do. (the full quilt can be seen if you scroll down a couple of posts)



There is also a bit of Pom pom de paris and some Lilly and Will 2. Both are Moda lines that worked well with it.


A new year, calls for a new start.  Using a layer cake of "hometown" by Sweetwater, I have drawn up a plan..............



.......more on that later.

I wanted to say a special Happy New Year to Marie, who is sitting up there in LL sipping coffee and reading her list of blogs.

Have a great day : )

The bindings look wonderful. I have not yet tried to do bindings. As I am new to sewing strait lines are still a chalange to me. Very pretty quilt design.
