Saturday report: A Friday finish…………

The binding is on and a small label is attached. Martha Washington Star quilt is officially a UFO no longer! It’s especially nice that my stash didn’t increase much with leftovers from this kit and I used all but 25” of the binding I had prepped (that fabric is totally gone!)………IMG_1397 It was cut 1.25” and, yes, it was not the normal double binding. I did a bit more stitching in the daisy flowers but decided to leave the stars and pinwheels alone…………………… IMG_1393 IMG_1399 The outer border stitching is a ‘take’ on the daisy theme….my sample…….. IMG_1396 and the “real thing” (very difficult to see the actual stitching)…top & backing…….. IMG_1405IMG_1403. And the final ‘finish’………………………….IMG_1401 The final dimensions are 63”x 65”. This was a Connecting Threads kit of years ago.

Thread: (top) Glide, 40wt; (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70wt. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom, cotton/poly (single layer).

      Oh yes! The satisfaction is quite different than a project started & finished in a timely fashion. I hope to keep going with this. There are so many kits/fabric languishing!!!!

      I wasn’t sure how this would come out but I really like it……and the applique was a pleasant process (hadn’t done it in quite a while!). Thanks so much for stopping by!
