Completion.....Almost

Hello Everyone,

I'm on the road to completion of Leaf Peepers.  The binding is going on.



As soon as the binding is finished, we will take this quilt out for a photo shoot for the front cover.  Then this quilt will be totally in the finished column.

In Between Stitches has kits listed on their website HERE.  The kits aren't ready just yet, but you'd better get on the list soon if you want to make a Leaf Peepers quilt.

I love it once the binding is made, and stitched onto the quilt.  I love to sit and stitch by hand.  It is soothing, relaxing, and I have a wonderful feeling of completion.  Not to mention I have another quilt to put on display in the cabin this Fall, and for many years to come.

I think we all want to get through Summer and hop right into Fall.  I would like to be optimistic about the virus.....but the latest surge in cases in my area, and California in general makes me very nervous.  My state is going backwards with our reopening.  It is quite depressing at times.  We keep doing our bit by wearing a mask whenever we are out, which isn't very often.  On the positive side, I'm getting so much quilting, and pattern writing done.

I have two other major projects to work on, and I'll get back to them this week now that Leaf Peepers is going to be in the finish column.

  2. Your quilt is so beautiful! At least us quilters have something to keep us occupied and safe at home. Happy stitching!

    1. Thank you Gretchen. My days are so full since I get to stay home. If I didn't quilt, I would most likely be reading or working in the yard. Wait no yard work.....way too many bears!
