Binding Blitz!!!

 Happy May Day!  The first of May.  It is such pretty weather here...I hope it is pretty and nice where ever you are too.  Above is an old quilt...but I finished binding it this past month!!  All done.  It is hand and machine quilted, and feels quite old fashioned...thin batting and just a nice drape.  Maybe I will have a grand child someday and that baby will get this one!
I have been also working on the Rainbow quilts.  Behind, a bit...but here is where I am.  Mostly cutting things out...little sitting at the sewing machine lately.  Purple was the chosen color for April...I love purple!!

Binding Blitz!!!

  Please add your link below...The prize is the roll of pretty reproduction fabrics I purchased and showed earlier in the month. I will add mine first, just to make sure it works...not counted in the drawing, LOL!


Have a wonderful day, everyone!!

Well done!

I love your rainbow blocks: they will be fun in a quilt.

Love the colorful posies!

What a pretty quilt and your blocks are going to make an awesome quilt too.

Our weather is great right now. This is the first time since the middle of February that we have had more than three days without rain.

I hope you are feeling better.

That will make a nice baby quilt--someday. : )
Love the new purple blocks. Can't get enough of that color.
Are you doing better these days?

Lovely finish Julie (as always!). Your flowers are so pretty and summery. I've loved watching you make them month by month.

Hi! I found your blog recently and have enjoyed reading it, both your quilting and nurse adventures! It is very inspiring! Thank you! Sorry for my poor english...

Thank you for the Linky Party! This is such wonderful motivation for me to keep finishing a UFO each month. Your on point 4-patches are so pretty and that counts for the APQ sew along, "Go Four It", too, doesn't it? Nice work!!! hope you are getting over this awful cold!

Lorraine said...

Congratulations on finishing your quilt. A very nice feeling when it is all done!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Very nice finish, congrats! You're right about batting weight and drape, some just "feel" so good. Your rainbow blocks are a happy ray of sunshine... so pretty.

I can't believe it's May already, but I'm sure ready for warmer weather! :0)

Loris said...

Gorgeous finish! I'm out of the loop this month. I finished 2 little rag quilts but they don't require bindings. I have 2 quilt tops to quilt though so I will have something show for next month 😊

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

Woohoo! I finished 2 quilts in April, my largest quilt ever, and a mini quilt.

Quilter Kathy said...

I cannot believe it, but I did not sew one single binding this month. So sad! I have no idea what i have been doing here?!?! I must make up for it this month! LOL

Cathy said...

Oh, yummy, pink and brown. Congrats on that lovely finish!

Lori said...

Such a pretty quilt. Wow! Lots of people putting binding on!!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I love pink and brown quilts--so pretty!

audrey said...

Congrats on finishing your older quilt! It's very sweet.:) I can't believe I forgot about your binding blitz. Oh well. I haven't got anything new to show yet anyway!

Another great quilt!! I had hoped to participate in binding blitz in April, but it didn't happen. Had a call from my quilter today, and my newest design is on it's way to me - so now I will have something to bind!!

Climbed on the wagon and finished three runners and one small lap quilt. Binding, schminding . Done. Need to start a new project. Wasn't starting another till the bindings were completed. Love Kim Diehl's work. Thanks for the chance to win
