Monday Making

I shared about this quilt in March....
An OLD unfinished quilt that needed a little LOVE and attention.

She's a QUIRKY quilt.
There are some thin fabrics and some weak seams.
But....
I'm a CRAZY quilter and wanted her to be DONE!
EVEN if she IS a bit rough around the edges!

I took her along on our recent cross country drive
and found that hand quilting and riding shotgun go HAND in HAND!!
;)

After finishing up the hand quilting...
I trimmed her and added this striped binding.

We are VERY close to a finish friends!!!
This old quilt will soon find her life can be USEFUL!

Isn't that what EVERY quilt wants???

What are YOU making this week??

  15. It is so nice to see people finishing some of the old quilts. I've been working on old blocks/quilts owned by a friend. Yep, these are not the best blocks in the world but they do make up into reasonable quilts. I've finished 2 so far and my friend loves them. She doesn't want to give them to family which was her original intent. I need to get a little more dedicated to working on them though.
