Slow Stitching

 Binding here.  This is not my quilt, but my friend Robin's quilt.  It appears maybe to be a 1950's quilt?  Anyway, her grandmother made four of these quilt tops, and I have been trying to get them all done for her. Millie quilted them, and I am binding them.  This is the very last one.  Robin has all the rest of them already.
Scraps and florals galore!!  It is not straight...it is not perfect...but I love the heart and soul and love that Robin's grandmother put into it.  So this is my slow stitching for the day!!  I am linking with Kathy, HERE.


Have a great day, everyone!

What a beautifully colorful quilt! Enjoy your slow stitching.

Ahhh, quilting as it was originally intended - scrappy and personal - not a rotary cutter in sight.

I love it!

I just love the quilt on your blog header - it makes me want to jump into the scrap boxes and get busy.

I like the floral border fabric. I had a reproduction fabric at one time that looked very similar as far as the plaid but it had no flowers.

That is so wonderful that she has them and you helped her! I wish I had a family quilt of some sort.

How good of you to help your friend get these quilts completed. I'm sure that means a lot to her.
You are such a sweetheart!
