Off We Go



Finished with time to spare. Tonite is the next Little Women's Club meeting and and was able to finish quilting and binding this little piece two days ago. The pattern is called Redware & Harvest. I followed Jo Morton's color scheme and the name fits. It measures about 30" square. I did a cross hatch quilting with rust colored thread and bound it was a rust bias cut binding. I used LuAnn's binding tutorial ( LuAnn of Loose Threads fame) and it worked great. Thanks, LuAnn.
We are heading out tomorrow for a weekend with our son and to attend the Illinois - Purdue football game at Purdue. We have such a family rivalry going and I think Purdue might get creamed.

  2. Although my son and DIL are Purdue grads and I'm a born-Hoosier, I now live in IL and my hubby is a huge fan of the Illini ... so I'll be watching the game on TV and just hoping for a good game. Enjoy being there in person!
    Great quilt!

  3. This is a warm and beautiful little piece! You made great fabric choices and the quilting is just the thing. Do you do it on your home machine or do you have a long arm? You may have said, but I can't remember from one post to the next who does what. : )
