Friday night was Friday Night with Friends, an online quilting group. Friday was a busy day for me, but not quilting wise. My daughter Katerina was starting her Spring Break from college so I spent most of the day traveling to and from her school. But when it’s a choice between my lovely girl and quilting, Katerina wins every time!
The drive was pleasant and we did a lot of catching up. Before I went though, I spent Friday morning preparing the binding for Brickyard, my next quilt pattern after Stepping Stones. First, I played around with the idea of binding it in the same fabric as the background. I decided however to use the leftover jellyroll strips to bind it and add slight sparkle at the edges of the quilt. I like checking to see how my binding works on both the front and back before deciding.
I got the binding cut and sewn together before I had to leave to pick up Katerina.
After I got home, I sewed on the binding. Sometime this weekend I’ll sew the binding down and I’ll have another quilt finish!
Thanks to all my Friday Night Friends…I hope you had as productive an evening as I did!
I share my posts with these awesome linky parties, including Friday Night with Friends and Design Board Monday.
