Getting there.......

Yesterday was the twice monthly sew-in so I took this quilt with me to work on the hand sewing part of the binding.  I got almost 2 sides done there.  I came home and watched the first episode of season 5 of Downton Abbey and finished it.
I matched the print when I sewed the seam on the backing and it is hardly visible at all.







Then while watching the news and weather I sewed the binding on this small piece and got 1 1/2 sides hand sewn.  I hope I can finish the binding on this one and the batik one by Saturday night to have 4 finishes in the first 10 days of January.  Then I will be ready for round 2.

How big is the quilt in the top picture?
Weeks like this are when I'm glad my studio is in the basement -- cozier down there than upstairs!

are you still naming all these quilts, Wanda? ... I love the big quilt on the top of your blog today, scrumptious.

one finish after another - you will meet your goal at this rate!

Both are wonderful! Doesn't feel so good to have those finishes already for the month? I will have my first finish this weekend and will be spending the weekend getting other quilts ready to be quilted.

You are off to a great start for 2015. Both finishes are wonderful. I'll bet that matching that print was a challenge.

I love the Kaffe quilt but WOW, I really love the mini! It really jumped right out at me off the computer screen. :) Congrats on the finishes. You are a machine!

Love the Kaffe! The striped fabric surrounding the blocks really makes it sing! You are off to a great start for 2015!

I love the choices for the back and border of the Kaffe quilt.

The top quilt looks like it should be a game, or a game board. And of course it is beautiful as are all of your quilts.

Gorgeous quilts! You are so inspirational. I'm saving up pieces of Kaffe Fassett fabrics to make a quilt one day. X

I'm surprised how well the border works on the top quilt. I would've never expected a light border to look so good on a top where all the fabrics were so saturated. But it looks great! Just goes to show that it's always worth the trouble to test the unlikely, it might turn out to be the best!
