Vintage Holiday QAL Week 10: Binding


First, I want to thank you all for your sweet words about yesterday's post. You have given me so much encouragement, and I'm so grateful. Thank you, my friends.


Next I want to say -- hallelujah, it's done!! I have never taken so long to finish a quilt before, and seeing this one complete gave me such a thrill.


I bound it in a red print which adds a nice little burst of color all the way around the quilt and matches perfectly with the red flowers in the blue print I used for the border on the front.


Since my little Bear has been needing a new quilt for her larger bed, I decided to offer this one to her if she was interested. She was absolutely overjoyed. In fact, I could hardly carry the quilt to her bed this evening because she was walking along next to me trying to gather it in her arms and give it kisses. I honestly don't know if anyone loves my quilts more than my daughters do.

So here we are at the final week! Wrap up those quilts and get ready to link up your big finish some time between next Monday and Friday. The wonderful people at Fat Quarter Shop have given me two beautiful fat quarter bundles of Vintage Modern to give away to two of you who link up. You won't want to miss out!

Linking up to Sew Modern Monday and the Let's Get Acquainted Monday Link-up.

  2. That looks great!! Can we link up through Flickr or something instead of a blog? I have my backing, batting, and finished quilt top...now I just need to put it all together...which means I have to vacuum the floor first so I can lay it out...which means it can wait a day or two :)

  15. "I could hardly carry the quilt to her bed this evening because she was walking along next to me trying to gather it in her arms and give it kisses. I honestly don't know if anyone loves my quilts more than my daughters do."

    Could that be cuter? No. No it could not.
