Humming birds have always been around our house and there are so many that my dad refills two feeders every day! Seriously, at one point, I counted 11 humming birds at the feeders, vying for a spot all at once.
It was a great weekend, and we surely loved the cooler weather.
I've been working on my blocks for our Across the Sea Quilt-Along and am loving them. I will confess to changing my mind on the background after I got started so my seam ripper and I spent some quality time together today.
I'm having a ball checking out everybody's fabric choices in our Flickr group. Thinking about joining us? There is still plenty of time! The piecing instructions will be posted on Monday but until then, you can find everything you need to know right here.
I also had a chance to finish this little stroller quilt for my Etsy shop. I used Modern Workshop by Moda and my favorite IKEA kid's fabric on the back.
Those little animals are just so happy. I quilted it with my new favorite Aurifil variegated thread- LOVE- and it was just the perfect thing for this colorful quilt.
Inspired by Rachel's post about machine binding, I decided to give it another try and really like the result.
I sewed the binding on the back then folded it over to the front side where I sewed it on with a zigzag stitch.
I think it adds to the whimsy of this quilt and is a good choice for durability.
So tell me, what are you working on?
BTW, I'm linking up to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story today.
