This weekend was a mash up.
Not in a bad way mind you.
I just spent a great deal of time outside working on the yard with the beautiful sunny weather.
In addition to that, when it was cloudy or raining, I did some organizing in closets and my sewing area.
I took an inventory on quilts that need bindings.
Yep 15. They are all sizes from baby to queen.
Binding Darla was top on my list since it is such a pretty quilt.

 When I was deciding on the backing for this quilt I couldn't find the fabric I had purchased for it.
{part of the reason I decided to organize my fabric....because I have been 'losing' fabrics}
I ended up using a stash fabric...but I didn't have quite enough, so I used the binding fabric and pieced the back.
You can see it is just a small strip.
It gives this quilt character and when a guest uses it, they will wonder why I did it ;)

You know I love Darla! Looks great! 15 quilts to bind. YIKES. I only have 3 that need them done and that give me eye twitches. LOL.

The Darla quilt looks so pretty! I love the fabrics that you used in making it. :) I know you have a lot of binding to do, but I'm pretty sure you'll finish it in no time. Good luck and all the best to you! :)

15? but think of the fun you had all along the way to get to the binding stage.I love it! The excitment is pretty much over when you get a quilt to that stage you then see the whole picture. Congrats on those 15 that got that far!1 quilter000
