Can you see my halo glowing?

This last few weeks I have been most diligent about pulling something off the mend / alter / complete pile rather than start a new project every time the urge to sew comes over me.  Not too much is interesting to report, but I did put the binding on this quilt that I made at Easter.  The quilt is based on the one in Amy Butler's In Stitches, although I did change the layout a little and I used different piecing techniques.  The fabrics are all Amy Butler fabrics.  The backing is a gingham sheeting.

Edit:  The quilt is the size of a single bed.  It has been made to go on the couch on my verandah, which is big enough to lie down on for an afternoon nap.  You can see the matching cushions in this photo.


  1. Lovely quilt Katherine. I love the spotty binding. It will look fabulous on your daybed.

  2. Quilt binding! Your halo is blinding.
    The quilt is lovely, but personally, I could not face all those straight lines of sewing.

  3. It's beautiful. I've never quilted and while I would love to do it, I have NO room. Enjoy your new quilt with it's lovely colors.

  4. It feels good, yes, even supremely virtuous to finish off long fiddly projects. What a lovely quilt - I cannot work out its size from the photo, but it is very pretty indeed. Will it get actualy wear or is it for decorative purposes only?
