Sunday Finish!

It has been a beautiful Sunday here in NW Indiana. This afternoon turned out to be wonderful with almost no humidity what so ever, so different from what it has been. I finished up sewing down the binding on this, another really old quilt that just needed quilted, and wanted to get a pix of it before it got too late.
I bought this kit many years ago at Paducah, I think it might have been the first time I had gone, so it has been in my sewing room for quite a while. It was a very simple pattern but it was the colors of the fabric that I really loved and still do to this day. The fabrics are why I love the quilts I pick, not the patterns usually, and the butter yellow is one of my all time favorite.


I am back working on my little baskets for my "Christmas Treat" quilt and have a couple of quilts to quilt for church. I recently purchased "Flower Basket Medallion" pattern by Kim McLean. I love the quilt and will probably do it all in 30's fabrics. It will be a long process but I think well worth it! Alot of fun projects ahead!!

Love all you projects lately. Giving up quilting for others has been a bonus for you. You have been one busy girl. WTG.

Even if you bought it a long time ago it seems to be a classic! What a beautiful quilt with wonderful fabrics.
