Sunday Slowdown

I was ready to settle down on the couch and do absolutely nothing this evening.   Then I saw a Downton Abbey special on PBS and had an urge to stitch a bit of binding to say goodbye to the weekend.  It didn't take long to get the binding sewn on to the front of Jamestown Landing.  
Everything is scrappy about this quilt, even the binding, but somehow it all goes together because everything is green.  I've got all my supplies handy in a purple zipper case that I sewed up earlier this summer.  With that, I'm off to stitch a bit of binding.  I hope you are all finding a reason to sit with a bit of handwork today.  Be sure to visit Kathy and see what everyone is up to.

I like how you have also done a scrappy sashing. The green looks good

Gosh, I missed the Downton special. Binding would have been a good stitching project to do while watching it. I like coordinated scrappy quilts. It is looking good.

I love how this project turned out. I missed the program, I hope it is replayed.

wonderful quilt. I love monochromatic; i.e. same color family with a zillion different fabrics. The best of the best. I don't know how you get so much done, and work and have a family. Superwoman, I suspect.

Love that quilt as I am partial to green. I actually did sit down and do a bit of handwork. Mine was turning under the seam allowance to a paper pieced part of a block.

Great green scrappy quilt! I missed the Downton Abby special, completely forgot about it. I guess my applique was keeping me too busy.
