String Quilt

I finished the binding on my string quilt yesterday.  It was sooo nice.  I sat on the deck and stitched the binding down by hand.  The day was beautiful.  After dinner I sat on the deck again, with my quilt on me and read a book with a glass a wine.  Love the cooler weather!

I tried to take a picture yesterday, but it was too shady.  Today it's overcast and this is the best I could do.  Just had to show you though.

 I did find a shoe box size plastic bin in the closet with the fabric for His and Hers Halloween pillowcases.  I sewed them up this morning.  Took me a little time to find a fabric to go with the "Hunks" but I did!

I've been trying to pack up things for the Retreat, so I guess I better get busy and go back to that.

Love your string quilt, but I'm crazy about that Halloween Hunks fabric! Is it an older one or do you think I could find it now?

Love the newest addition the quilt family ;) Great job on yet another finish for this year! Those pillowcases are a hoot :) Enjoy your Re-treat :)


Beautiful, I am in the process of making my first string quilt, it's a lot of fun.
