Odds and Ends

I sat down to start the hand work on the binding for the green crumbs when I realized that I hadn't finished the binding for the last crumb quilt I finished.  These were the blocks that I made for the Crumb Along at Jo's Country Junction. It started out as a black background Amish inspired quilt, but diverged somewhere along the road.  It is officially done now, leaving me free to move on the what is next. 
We spent the afternoon at Ryan's football game, and I thought about taking a quilt along to sew down binding.  I am glad that I didn't though, as the heat was impressive and we all left in a puddle of our own sweat.  Having a quilt to carry wouldn't have helped the situation any at all.

I really like the scrappiness of this quilt. I'm a bit jealous of your heat though. Here we are in the UK well into May and I'm still wearing my winter woollies and having to switch the heating on.
