Binding Blitz...January's finishes!

I’m linking up with JulieK today, because I actually managed to finish this piece from a few years ago!
This was a block of the month called Simple Thymes...but I can't remember where I got it!

It was a fun quilt to put together but I just never finished it till Julie started this Binding Blitz!!

 This is the back...I had it pin basted for over a year!

My hand quilting leaves much to be desired...but it actually is easier on my poor arthritic hands than machine free motion quilting!

The second binding I did was this little runner.  We got a new TV for the bedroom and moved the old one into the living room...I wanted a quick little runner to place under it on the new shelf we had to make in the entertainment center.  This did the trick...quick and easy!

Thanks Julie for thinking of this...I usually bind quilts when I FINALLY finish the quilting I may not have anymore for a while.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


  1. The black thread you used in the quilting is perfect for a folk art quilt.

  2. Well, that is why I am dong the Binding Blitz...I have quilts hanging out for years that need those bindings attached!! Great finishes! I love that angel, by the way....

  3. the polka dots are terrific!!
    I used to hand quilt everything then I didn't want to blow out my hands, as I love hand piecing, so I stopped. Doesn't need to be perfect to be great. Perfection is so overrated. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  4. Beautiful! Binding is my favorite part of a quilt because it means the quilt is DONE! LOL


It's always so much fun to read comments...thanks for leaving one.
