I Bound and I bordered!!!

 I think I am sick - very very sick - I have the Binding flu.... yep - that must be what it is..

And the sad thing.... I am not even really procrastinating it that much. WHAT happened to me? 

I bound this one:

It is from a pattern called Merry Go Round - and I actually even listed it in my Etsy store! I am not usually that organized!!

Here is a close up of the quilting - because - I love it!


And then... I bound Diamondback!!  I really like the way the Black binding makes that black pop out !!
And get this - I even got it listed in my Quiltygirl Etsy Store!  I am worried about myself - can I keep up with me????


This is the back! I found this camping print on my Man Shelf and thought it would be perfect!


and then..... my machine started getting goofy and I was worried! So! I took it down and got my other one out. Okay - I drug the other one up the stairs and then had to take an hour nap from all that hard work! and as I got back at it...


I bordered.... 


Maybe you remember? I bought the Log Cabin Block on Board from accuquilt and made a greek key quilt? ( Click here to see the first one) 

well - I liked it so much!!! I had to make another one.... so here it is!  ( above)  The other one was white with reds and blues, so I wanted to see what happened when you changed the solid to a tan - I still like it!  This is a Quilt of Valor once I get it quilted


And then I had leftover block from one of the ColorBlock Quilts.... don't ask which one, my brain is slowing down.... so I put them together and bordered it !




after all that - I deserve a cookie or a brownie or a nap right!?

Vicki in MN said...

Wow, you go girl!! I think you deserved all three...cookie, brownie and a nap!

Linda said...

Girl you are a machine! Merry Go Round is gorgeous, and I love the backing you put on Diamondback. I bet they go fast in your store. Are those tiny stars in the border for your Quilt of Valor? Yes go eat a cookie and a brownie and take a nap - you deserve it all!

Yippee! I would have all three-cookie, brownie and then a nap! lol
Great job cleaning up the almost-finished pile!

Debbie said...

Truly beautiful! You have been productive. And I also like your quilting on your hexie quilt. Hooray for you!

Kat Scribner said...

Wow. what a quilt show today. Love them all !!

Sara said...

Yup - you do deserve a cookie AND a nap. I find it easy to put off binding when it's a big quilt as I'm kind of slow. But it's always exciting to get to that stage finally. The quilting really is amazing on that quilt.

Awesome, binding the first Merry Go Round quilt with the hexagon sides is even different than a normal binding, too. Way to go! I hope you got those treats. :)

You are on a roll! I love Diamondback and the hexie quilts.

Gretchen Weaver said...

I need to go take a nap after reading your post! I love the Merry Go Round quilt. I want to make something using that idea someday. All 3 quilts are lovely and Greek Key is very intriguing. Happy stitching!

You definitely deserve a cookie, brownie, AND a nap! Great job.

Oh my goodness! I’m afraid I must be IMMUNE to the Binding Flu, because that NEVER happens to me! Beautiful finishes, and I am also in favor of awarding you naps, cookies, and brownies!

See, binding isn't as bad as you thought it was. Great projects!

Nancy said...

Your hexagon quilt is just too fun! I love the colors you used. I think the binding would have been challenging but you did such a good job with it. Great finish!

Snowcatcher said...

Definitely a brownie, warmed, with homemade ice cream melting down the sides! Great work, and you could probably make a lot of money spreading that binding virus around... :)
