Baby quilt finished…used the Threadbanger

I finished the baby quilt yesterday. After machine quilting by ‘stitch in the ditch’ with my new Janome “threadbanger” ~

I hand-stitched the binding on.

It was 50F and SUNNY yesterday in the Truckee Meadows and surrounding area, so I took the quilt, my silver tailor’s thimble, needle and thread and sat outside on the back porch to stitch the binding on.

Big sigh…it was a wonderous sunny day…I pretended to load up on natural vitamin D (not really sure you can do that in the winter up north)! It was nice to quilt, soak up the sun rays, and listen to the birds.

    That is so cute! I sat out on the back deck and just soaked up the sun doing nothing.

  2. Ok…I’m convinced now, using cheater panels is a quick and cute way to make baby quilts!

    And today is grey and cloudy, once again. I’m glad mom nature let us have a day of spring!

    It is only 9 outside today. I can only dream about getting to sit outside and feel the sun and those vitamins running through my veins! See why I have that attitude problem lol? Love your quilt btw!

    I really think blue and yellow are one of life’s most perfect combinations. ;-)
