I'm a little late to the finish it up Friday party.
I JUST made it outside to take a photo before I lost the sunlight!
It was GREAT to get this ALL done today.
When you have a GOAL...
It sure is nice to get to the finish line......
Even when there are unforseen curves in the road!
I've quilted it simply with lines
and will go back now
and add some BIG red stitches BY HAND!
Close enough, don't ya think?
I scoured my 2 1/2" strip drawer
and found the LAST few REDS to bind this with.
Red and white.
That classic combo we ALL love!!!
This cuddly quilt measures 53"x57"
and will be auctioned off soon
to support a friend's daughter
heading to Canada on a year long
One fun fact about this quilt:
A few years ago I inherited
a bag of OLD cloth bandage strips
rolled up and sewn tight to be sent to
They were probably made in the 50's or 60's.
I was able to add some to this quilt!
I love the way old things made with love and care
can be added to some of the things we make TODAY!!!!
It's almost like they were WAITING patiently
for their turn to be made into something special!!!
