FNwF August.

How did it get to be August already? Anyway yesterday i joined in with our lovely hostess Cheryll & lots of other ladies for Friday Night with Friends

I needed to bind a quilt that i'd received back from Fiona last month so i started the day by making the binding & then attaching it by machine. As always Fiona has weaved her magic & the quilting is beautiful.

This is Ice Cream Soda. It was an EPP bom from Tales Of Cloth in 2017. All the flowers came from my scrap basket & the borders from my stash. The only thing i bought for it was the backing. The top was completed in January 2018 & it has been patiently waiting it's turn to be quilted.
The afternoon/evening was spent hand stitching the binding down whilst watching a series on Netflix.

After i machined the binding down i ironed on the transfer for block 6 of my Christmas BOM.
Now i'd better get busy stitching. :)

After i'd put the last stitch in the binding i added a few stitches to this little stitchery.
I managed to get the bird done on the bottom half before bed called me.

Pop over to visit Cheryll to find the links to the ladies who joined in & see what projects they all worked on.

Happy Stitching,

How lovely to have a finish! Especially one that has obviously demanded lots of time. Handwork is always such a nice departure from machine work though. I think every quilter should have some of both among her WIPs. It's even better that it all came from stash. That's sure my favorite sort of quiltmaking! Keep up the great work.
