Vertical seams, bindings, mug rugs.....

All 20 vertical seams are sewn on the new colorwash.  Now I need to sew the horizontal seams.  Using this method to sew it together has all the decisions made once and then all the rows are attached to each other and you don't have to decide a second time which way they fit in.
The binding is sewn onto both of the older colorwash pieces, and the hand sewing finished on this one.  This binding is black with shots of purple through it.  There are lots of good TV programs this week so I should get the hand sewing done on the other one too.
I quilted the 3 mug rugs last week but didn't look for binding until yesterday.
I was pretty sure the Amaryllis would only have 2 flowers on each of the stalks because the bud pod was so small.  I'm still not sure of the color but I think this is the white with red accents.  The other one hasn't opened yet.

OMG the colorwash quilt is gorgeous! How big are the squares? Did you purchase or dye the fabric?

The colorwash is looking good and great that you are getting more bindings finished. I worked on a couple over the weekend as well.

I could just sit and look at your colorwash quilts for a LONG time! They are so peaceful somehow. Like the mug rugs, too. Our Amaryllis has just about finished.
