I finally quilted the lovely vintage quilt top I got at Brimfield last year and it looks like it's a hit with the both cats.
There are so many pretty and colorful fabrics in this quilt it was a challenge to find just the right fabrics for the back and binding.
I finally opted for blue birds for the back and a pretty red and white polka dot with tiny blue flowers for the binding. Against the advice of the expert quilters in the room, I used simple straight lines and red thread for the quilting. It's not perfect, I'm really happy with the look.
Finally, I suppose I must share this picture as well.
Yes that's me with my quilt sewn to the tablecloth. Not my finest crafting moment but I'm thankful that at least it wasn't my shirt.
