Saturday Quilting

I squeaked in some stashbusting today. I quilted a top that I made... oh, I'd guess in 2005 or 2006. I don't think I've blogged about it before.

I think I was on an Irish Chain kick back then. It's a pretty small quilt - haven't measured, but it's like 32x40. I also had fun with the direction of the stripes.

Quilted it with loopies. Shortly after I started, I wished I had picked a meander instead... but hey, it's done! :)

The binding's on, and in my book the quilt is good as done. Bindings seem to magically find their way sewn down and I barely have any recollections of doing it. I think it's because it's pretty portable to sew down a binding. In the bed, on the couch, in the car, at my in-laws.

I'm guessing the whole quilt took away another 2.5 yards from my stash. Huh. I better start quilting faster if I want to have any hopes of knocking down the fabric piles! :P

Yep, done is good and "done and cute" is even better!

Love the fabrics, especially the stripe. All those small finishes add up through the year, and before you know it you're down 20 yards.

I love what the stripes do for it. The top picture just makes it look so awesome.
