Some Stitching

I am slowly getting through my pile of WIPs.


I am stitched the binding on my 40th birthday quilt (I will soon turn 42). It has sat for months with just the binding to attach (why do we leave this step for so long) but now it is done and hanging over the back of the lounge in the lounge room.



This quilt has sat half pieced for about two years. I have used a Me and My Sister pattern called Cake Walk and a Crazy Eight Jelly Roll and Layer Cake. It took me forever to cut it all out but once I started piecing it came together really quickly. I am super pleased with how it looks and am hoping to have it completely finished by xmas.

More blocks done for my Friends in Stitching BOM.

All gorgeous - especially your birthday quilt!

I love your star quilt. Its hard to beat a good star quilt for appeal. Congratulations on getting some WIP done. That can be a huge challenge for us quilters especially with the lure of new projects calling.
