After two evenings of binding stitching while hanging out with the kids, Cherry Blossom is officially done. I used a happy green polka dot on the back and a repeat of the inner border purple for the binding. It even has a hanging sleeve because Anna thought we should hang it in the study.
Ryan was kind enough to hold it up outside for a quick photo. Not that I gave him much of a choice.
I've had a stack of solid squares ready for the back of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler quilt for quite a while. Sewing them together randomly took just a couple of evenings this week. Now that the quilting frame is fully extended, it is the perfect time to quilt up the last three big quilts on my list.
Hawaii Sunset is loaded now. I think this sampler might be next, just because I think I know how to quilt it. Still pondering how to quilt this year's sampler. Hopefully inspiration will strike.
Not now though, Kurt and I have a Christmas party tonight. Sydney has a two day out of town LAX tournament starting tomorrow, and the Anna and Ryan are at a powerlifting match on Sunday. Soon though, the semester will end and quilting will take priority.
Beautiful finish! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt your Hawaii Sunset quilt.
Beautiful Quilts, Angela. Cherry Blossom should be hung on the wall. Backing of colorful squares was a great idea for the sampler. Such a happy quilt.
I love Cheery Blossom!
The binding and backing on Cherry Blossoms is just perfect. I like the solid squares for a backing on the rainbow sampler.
It is so good to stack the quilts up and get them finished! Good work! I haven't figured out what to do for the backing on my RSC2015 yet.
I love Cherry Blossom! (After seeing yours, I've added it to my list...)
You are just a dynamo with the quilt finishing!
That's a GREAT quilt!! Congrats on your finish!!
Cherry Blossom turned out beautifully. I'm looking forward to more quilting time during the break too. Drama Teen just wants to survive finals!
