Finish #4.............

I finished the hand sewing on the binding late yesterday afternoon on this Stack and Slash quilt, the 4th finish in 10 days!  It is 62" x 76".






I am going to try to remember to show the backing on every quilt this year.  That is as far as I will go with New Year's resolutions.







Here is a better shot of the quilting.  The wavy lines go the long way on the quilt, top to bottom.







I had the most wonderful day yesterday.  A friend who I used to see a lot in the 1990s and her husband who I met on Bee night at her house over 20 years ago drove out to Sandwich.  It was so good to see them again.  I showed her lots of quilts and my work spaces.  She brought 2 quilts to show me too, one of them is here.  She also brought me this box of candy.  It is the most delicious chocolate I have had in a long time.  I started on the ones with the crunchy dots and then I noticed another layer underneath with letters on top of each piece.  There is a little guide inserted in the box to tell what flavor each letter represents.  I love that, no surprises!

It's so good to meet up with good friends! The chocolates look similar to the.hand made ones we have St a shop here. They are a real treat.

It is always good to see old friends. You are rolling right along with you quilt making. Your friend's quilt was magnificent. I am finally back to doing some sewing. Today am working on a embroidered pillow for a gift. Yesterday finished off a Halloween quilt where I had to change the rod pocket and make it wider. It is always good to get a project done and more exciting to start a new one. Stay warm!!!

I made and sewed bindings on four comfort quilts yesterday- just have to sew them on the back. I use the glue binding method which I know you do not like, but I wash every quilt after finishing. Love the link to your friend's quilt!! If I lived closer, I would stop in with chocolate spong candy. It is a Buffalo specialty item. Sounds gross, but is melt in your mouth wonderfulness.

Love the quilt! I'm preparing to start quilting a stack of veteran's quilts and some of my fast quilts. Some will get your wavy like and loops treatment. I like it a lot.

Those chocolates look almost as good as your quilts, and they are both handmade!

I love that quilting design -- did you do it on your domestic machine, or on the longarm?

Christine said...

thanks for showing the backings!

Your entire post today was a big treat for us: chocolates, finished quilts and backs, someone's quilts. Thank you.

Hi, Wanda!

This is my favorite of the quilts you've shown recently. I've been waiting for the "portrait" finish! Wonderful!

I really love your sense of color, the more quilts you show. And what a wild ride with a finish in every blog post! I am lucky if I finish something every 6 months. :)

Beautiful quilt. Love the quilting. Chocolate looks delicious. Your friend know you well.

Beautiful quilt, backing and quilting, too! And it is almost impossible to go wrong with good chocolate! Looks delicious. (Let me clean the drool off the keyboard.))

Congrates on your 4th finish. I should have my first finish tomorrow finally. Nothing better than an exquisite piece of chocolate!

Wanda,

I love the colors in this quilt. The reddish pink makes every other color pop. Wish I had your sense of color
