Sunday Funday

 I finished quilting two tops yesterday.  That means today is for binding! I love binding.  I am going to sit on the balcony and look at the ocean and sew the day away.   

The sunrise was beautiful today.   Just a peek above the clouds.  
And then just minutes later it was showing its colors.   
Now back to quilts.  Frameshift got little contiguous half melon wedges on the nine patch area, and zig zags surrounded by ribbon candy for the sashing strips.  
Here is the back, a frame around orange and yellow.  
And her is the front.  I think that I have a nice yellow and green stripe for the binding.  I do enjoy striped bindings.  This was from the 2020 RSC.  All of this year's quilts were finished right on time thanks to all that extra time at home from March until July.  

Then the Row by Row Sampler quilt from 2016 got finished right after dinner. I loaded it on the frame sideways and then just quilted each row based on the block pattern.  It went quickly as it isn't a large quilt.  I can't believe that I am just now quilting the 2016 sampler quilt!   It feels good to be clearing up some of the quilting backlog.  No photo of the back of this one as it was quite dark already.  I'll get a final photo after the binding.  I have a dark purple that sort of resembles the hand dyes that will work for this one.  
I'm off for a grocery pickup, but then I will spend some time checking in with Oh Scrap! and Slow Stitching Sunday before the day gets away from me.

You have such a busy life, and always seem to squeeze plenty of productive sewing time in too. Love your finishes, and the sunrise photos.

To sit on your balcony, stitching, whilst watching the sun beams dance on the water must be one of life's pleasures. Lucky you! Your quilts you have showcased today are gorgeous. Your Row by Row Sampler is an amazing quilt. Enjoy that view....and the stitching of your binding!

What a beautiful sunrise! I like watching sunrises too. I like to think that God is giving us a smooch to start our day! Your finished and almost finished rainbow quilts are amazing. I'm so enjoying playing along this year in the RSC. Seeing others projects is so inspiring!

Cathy said...

Lovely finishes, Angela. I remember how fun that row (column) quilt was in 2016. I hope we do another one someday! You sure have beautiful sunrises!!!

Rebecca Grace said...

Wow -- if I had that gorgeous ocean view while I was sewing binding, binding would be my favorite part, too!! Love how your row quilt turned out.

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony.

I'm super excited to tell the public that I have been permanently cured from herpes by Dr Agbomina . I had herpes for years but everyone told me that there was no cure to it and every doctor I contacted failed to cure me until I contacted Dr Agbomina , he placed me on diet and also sent his medicine to me and today I'm free and my lab test confirmed it. You can contact Dr Agbomina via his WhatsApp +234(805)049-5479 or email: dragbonherbalmedicine@gmail.com You can visit his Website at https://dragbonherbalmedic.wixsite.com/welcometodoctoragbon

What could be more interesting than crawling on a review site with links to dating sites in old age? For example, on such https://seniordatingsitesfree.com/over-60-dating/. Agree, one thought that in old age you can find yourself a companion for the rest of your life cannot but please me.
