Flowers & Finishes

Despite still being in pain i sat down Sunday & added all the bindings to the 4 things i quilted last week. I got 3 bindings sewn down & was working on the 4th but something bugged me about it. I re-read the pattern several times but still couldn’t figure it out. What to do? I have a similar table topper waiting to be basted together, got it out to work out the problem. Ahah light bulb moment. I really hate it when patterns aren’t clear on instructions. So off the binding has to come. Hence only 3 finishes to show so far. :)

Table topper from Bronwyn Hayes book “Tea With Friends”.photo's 5874
 I started this with a friend many years ago. All it needed was the leaves hand-quilted on the border. So slack. :)

3rd finish. Small wallhanging. Yay 3 more things cleared from the ufo box.

Bummer about your pain and the binding having to come off, but you still did an excellent job on finishes! And, your flowers are as sweet as can be!

You are working on some lovely quilts. And your flowers are lovely too.

I hate it when instructions are not clear either and many times I just look at the picture and figure it out.
My brain sometimes does not work the way people write out their instructions!!

Have a blessed day!

I have looked at some of your other posts and your hexies are so pretty. I have that same pattern with the bird on it but have not started it. I love her designs. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a kind comment about my hexies.
