Binding Blitz!! April gift!!

 I am working on this binding...this quilt is all quilted!!
 Another view...
 And another!!  Randy D., of the Barrister's block blog,  had a quilt along a couple years ago.  I actually pretty much stayed caught up, and this quilt was the result.  Thank you, Randy!!
 This is the April Binding blitz prize!!  It is a bunch of fat eighths, and a few fat quarters as well.  The picture does not show it as well as I would like, but the fabrics are pretty reds...
and browns.  I like this bundle, and got it especially for someone who participates in the binding blitz this month.



**********************What in tarnation!!!!?????????????????????


I have a cold!!  A DOOZY of a cold!!  Rotten, I tell ya.  That is the way I feel!  I kind of thought I was immune...been a long time since I have been sick.  NyQuil is my favorite friend.  I can sleep with it!!  Love, Love, LOVE that!!

My heart rate is quite high again...Hashimoto's strikes again!!  OH well...this too shall pass!!

***************************************************************



Have a great day, everyone!!

Usually I'm not a fan of sampler type quilts, but yours is lovely, Julie! Hope you feel better soon!

As usual, I kept up with the blocks (mine are all red/black/tan) of Randy's SAL, but they are still just that...blocks! I want to do the sashing like you did, but just haven't had time. LOVE the reds and browns - sure hope I can log some binding this month - lol!

I love that QAL. I wish I had something to bind.........

Cathy said...

Your quilt is gorgeous! I love sampler quilts. I hope you feel better very soon.

Sue SA said...

Great news that you got another quilt bound. I have put binding on two new quilts this month but the rest of my time has been adding sleeves for our up and coming exhibition. I love binding, but mainly in winter, perfect for night time sewing!

Laura Chaney said...

That's a beautiful quilt! Love that you were able to keep up with the QAL. Feel better soon!!

Randy D. said...

Oh the quilt came out GREAT. I LOVE it... Hope you're feeling better!

So sorry you're feeling rotten with your cold. Snuggle under that lovely new quilt and give yourself some healing time. I didn't manage to keep up with the Barrister's Block, but the ones I had made went into a lap quilt that was raffled for charity :)

Quilter Kathy said...

Now just when did you quilt up this sampler quilt?
It is awesome! Too bad you have a terrible cold but hope you can recover with lots more hand quilting :)

Lilac Joan said...

I am with you. I have an some kind of sinus stuff. Two weeks so bad I finally went to doctor, which I never do. It is slowing getting better. First time sick in about five years. I know about the confusion. I will try to win the binding deal. Love the fat eights red and brown my favorites! Hope you get back to you usual self. You are so productive. Must be well organized. My medicine of choice is Airborne, usually does the job.

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

Hope you are feeling better. My son has been sick since Saturday. He just found out he has a sinus infection.
