The Finish is in Sight


Yesterday I finished quilting the scrappy quilt and today I sewed on the binding. I got every last inch of the binding from my drawer of leftover ends of binding from other quilts. That means I didn't use any fabric that wasn't in my scrap bins. Even most of the thread was from nearly empty spools and the bobbin thread for the quilting was pre-wound bobbins from the thrift shop. This is one thrifty quilt!

That quilt didn't take long to get finished. It looks like a good one to have handy in the living room for anyone that is chilled.
