Binding Blitz!!

 I have had this quilt cut out for a long while, and decided to sew some blocks up yesterday.
This is what it is supposed to look like.  I just noticed that the picture is upside down...but you get the idea.  The quilt is named "Arctic Nights", and is by Judy Dafoe Hopkins.  The pattern is in the Super Scrap Quilts book by Martingale.




It is the end of June already!!  Remember this book?  It is the prize for the Binding Blitz for June.

So please link up below if you have finished a binding (or two or three) this month!!  A random drawing will be held for this prize for each entry.  I hope each of you has a wonderful day!!

The quilt blocks, I like the way the lights and darks lay in the different blocks. Sort of postive/negative kind of look.

What a fun new quilt block to work on! I like it :-) it will make a lovely quilt.
My binding this month is so pitiful. ha! But I will link up my one little itty bitty quilt finished. You are coming up with some rather nice gifts for the Binding Blitz. Thank you for inspiring all of us!

Thank you for hosting Julie,
take a lock at all these wonderful quilts. So much fun.
Finally I can link up the finished Summer Fun quilt. So exciting. This was a lot of handquilting.

Your quilt will pretty. Love the colors.
Thank you for hosting this, I think it is a great way to get me to something that I can put off.

I think quilts in cool blue and green batiks are so soothing--and great colors to work with during a heatwave. : )
The bold graphics of this design are fun.
I recall seeing that quilt that is front and center on the book at a show a year or so ago. Pretty amazing!

I ran a search for your bowl."pressed glass fruit bowl Grapes" . You might enjoy seeing the results. I see two examples tho neither has much info. Both mention that it is VERY heavy. A set of similar smaller bowls is listed as made by Anchor Hocking.

Oh yeah, Arctic Nights is definitely going to be added to my list.

I love the colors of your blocks.

No binding this month. Hopefully I'll get some binding done in July (need to quilt a few quilts first).
