who doesn't like Friday. I'm off to set up for the aforementioned church rummage sale. No AC there, either. I'm a glutton of punishment, I guess. Knock on wood I find a bargain that makes all this work a little more fun.
I finally finished sewing the binding on this quilt. This is the original, unquilted picture.
If you click the picture you can get a closer look at the quilting. It's just a flowing flowery pattern in a variegated thread. It enhances the quilt pattern nicely.
I first blogged about this quilt here. It was so fun and easy to make. The original pattern was posted by Rachel last summer as a weekly project. (She posted 1 step per week for 4 weeks.) You can find her tutorial here. Scroll down to the postage stamp quilt. She called for 2 jelly rolls, a plain and a patterned. Mine used a little more of each since I made mine a little bigger. Now, every time I see a fabric I like I want the jelly roll so I can do this quilt again. Fun and easy despite the overall look of tedium. Like many quilts, larger pieces are sewn together then recut and sewn again.... so I never really handled a 2 1/2 inch square. Anyone who thinks they'd like to quilt but can't imagine sewing all those pieces could do this one and safely call themselves a quilter.
Still no picture of my way cute flip flop glasses. They're currently in the dishwasher. Tomorrow? We'll see. Possibly the suspense keeps you coming back.
