Hand stitching.......

I used a lot of different blue and green fabrics for the binding on this quilt.  I had a lot of strips that weren't full width (45") and decided to use them up.  I have 3 sides hand sewn already.

There are four blooms on this stalk so far and one more bud on the top getting ready to bloom.

All those bits look great as the binding. Flowers in the dead of winter are so nice!!! especially pink !!!

What a terrific binding! I save all my leftover pieces in a bin so I can do this. Just goes so perfect with the quilt.

I love scrappy binding and in the process of hand sewing the binding down on my granddaughter's quilt - it makes it interesting I think.

I'm lovin' your blues...

Yes, I love the scrappy binding too. Do you cut the pieces on-grain, then? I can't tell from the picture.

I only wish I had some of your talent - you blend colors so perfectly. I still have a 'fear' of what colors work next to each other!

Thanks for sharing your talents, happy creating!

I just love the colours in the blue quilt. You definitely are a master of colour!

Ooh, skinny lines. I'd like a better look at that one.

I think a binding made up of different fabrics looks great. Your amaryllis are looking beautiful!

I love scrappy binding. I have Amaryllis in the garden. Will still take some time to bloom.

You have so many beautiful amaryllis plants....do you keep them from year to year and do they rebloom for you? If so, what is your secret for getting these flowers to bloom again? I love them and always have them over the Christmas holidays but I don't know the secret to getting them to bloom the following year.

I can't wait to see the finished version of this. I'm actually working on a quilt - inspired by yours - in greens and purples, using roughly that pattern, though I'm not sure if the dimensions are the same as I don't know what yours are. I'm hand piecing mine, so it's a lot slower than yours!
