One Day - Two Finishes

It is a rare day for sure when I can boast not one, but two finishes.

After taking the last of the commissions to Terry's, I headed straight for two quilts I'd kept waiting in the wings for binding. I have had these quilts since late July, and showed them off in this post soon thereafter.

I started applying the binding to 16-Patch Stars on Friday evening, but got interrupted and didn't get back to it until yesterday, when Sharon was here for sewing. Before lunch, I managed to complete the binding on it. Yay!


It has been chilly here, but I took it out to the front yard anyway for a photo-op. The sun was shining, but the temps were shivery.

After lunch, I decided that I would finish off the binding on Eventide. Yes, I did!




Two quilts bound in one day. I feel so good about these finishes, let me tell you! I was enjoying the sunny late afternoon despite the chill, so I snapped some shots of the two quilts together. I am afraid that these two quilts are destined to be forever linked to one another - in my mind, at least - because of their finishes.


What a great way to start the week! Hope I can accomplish lots more, too.

I am linking up with Connie over at Freemotion by the River - click on over to see what other quilters are making.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

Lovely finishes, Jayne. I'm especially in love with the 2nd one. I would snuggle up in that quilt in a flash!

You are indeed off to a good start this week, wonderful quilts. The 16 patch stars really struck a chord with me.
