I finished the binding last night and had to do a quick photo shoot. It is way too bright outside for pictures, but I'm not complaining at all!
I must have cut into some of the Kona Ash I bought for this project as I didn't have quite enough to back it entirely in it. A little Lizzy House purple (from Hello Pilgrim? I think) and a strip of some leftover pieces of her fabrics finished it off.
I am holding my breath now, because this is in the wash, on cold, gentle cycle. I have no idea what most of these fabrics are made of, but they don't feel like anything close to quilting cotton. I am especially worried about the pink guazy fabric above, but they do have a layer of lightweight fusible interfacing on the backs of those bricks. Cross your fingers for me!
Rebecca will get her quilt the day after Thanksgiving. The friday after Thanksgiving is always "ThanksBash" with my husband's childhood friends. They started this tradition while we were in college and Andrew & I have played host for the last few years. It's a great time to see everyone since most of his friends have scattered around the country but usually come home for Thanksgiving. His friend Shara will not be making it as she now lives in Tel Aviv and has a newborn baby boy. For the last few days she has dealt with missiles coming in within a few blocks of her apartment (can you imagine this on top of the normal newborn worrying?). Please keep her and everyone affected by the attacks in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks,
