My Quilt for Basics

some basic  sewing to ease the jitters before I departed on my trip.

Victoria at Bumble Beans had just the pattern and a wonderful home for the finished quilt.

I had stitched,sandwiched,and completed half the diagonal quilting a month ago.
Steady stitching on Thursday and the top was ready to bind.

A view of the pieced back.

Coffee and binding at the ready

Friday attach binding.  I stitched it on the back of the quilt and turned it to the right side attaching with a decorative stitch. No hand stitching here
 I'm way slow.

A cosy quilt for comfort. I know it's cosy because I fell asleep under it while removing the basting pins
SH don't tell.

Basics is a community group helping  people in their own neighborhood.  My quilt for Basics has given me  time to reflect
remember my father
 a gift of self to someone else

Have you got time then help out and share . I'm glad I did.

I'm having a good weekend with the Grandchildren. All of you enjoy your family    Terry

What a great quilt and a great cause! I really have to try machine binding, I haven't been brave enough, I like your idea of using a decorative stitch!
