Friday night, I sat and got the binding stitched down on UFO #3 on my list.
It was a pattern by Billie Lauder and she gave the pattern away at a retreat I went to with my sister a few years ago. I didn't start the quilt at the retreat but did it a few summers ago. It's not that complicated, being a nine patch, but you do need to sew the fabric strips in order. It gives you a scrappy quilt but with a more organized look. I got it quilted this week with a simple grid pattern.
Here is a picture of the back. I just pieced 10" squares together.
I will keep this one for when my grandbabies visit. I don't have any grandbabies yet. I hope the fabric holds up until I get some grandbabies. I suppose dust could eat away at the threads and it could disinegrate before I have any grandkids. lol
Then.........today I went to a quilt show with my friend Neena. It was the South Bay Quilters Guild in Torrance. It was a nice size show with a good variety of quilts. Here's a picture of a quilt I really liked.You can find more pictures of quilts from the quilt exhibit and the quilt show on my webshots album here. Sheesh, good thing I'm going back to work tomorrow. I'm exhausted!!!
