A Finish and a Flimsy

The weather is wonderful with highs in the 70’s.  I love fall!  Sophie went in for a spa day and when she returned, we got down to business.  The baby quilt I had pending is now quilted.  I sewed the binding down and then used the school glue method hold the binding to the back and then machine stitched from the front.  It wasn’t perfect but for a baby quilt, it will do and be the stronger for it.  Bad picture but the colors just didn’t photograph well.

Baby QuiltI finished the civil war top but it’s too big to get a picture of the whole thing.  Here’s the center all sewn together.
