Sneak Peak

My Saturday had an early beginning with a 7:00 am meeting with a new tenant.  The nice thing is that I was home in time for breakfast before we left for the city for an oil change on our truck. 

While in the city we also visited Lowe's and I even got a few minutes in Kohl's.  After a great Mexican lunch we headed back for home.

I think I will spend the rest of the day in a chair working on the binding of my Luna Notte quilt.  I think my hand feels flexible enough today to do some hand sewing.  I'm giving you a sneak peek....

A closer look
Even with the A/C running it's still a bit warm to have such a heavy and large quilt on my lap.  I hope to have it done this weekend and I will post proper pictures then. 

I fell in love with the Luna Notte line from Moda.  I added the red/tan toile fabric in the outside border and also in two of my blocks.   This is one of my favorite tricks ~ adding an 'alien' fabric that works with another line for borders, blocks and sometimes even backing.   I love the old look of this quilt.  I still have some of the toile fabric left over and may make pillows or curtain panels for our bedroom.

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  I am off to work on my quilt.  I wish you a wonderful weekend and I'll meet you here again Monday.

Blessings and Peace & Plenty ~~  Barb
