Afternoon on the Porch is now a finished quilt! Check it out:
This one shows the quilting texture really well. It's a new pattern that my quilter just got, called "Bauhaus." I love how it looks on this quilt! And Diane did such a great job! I really appreciate her work. She makes me look good. (The original post on this quilt, including where to find the pattern, is HERE.)
The binding is a dark orange that doesn't appear anywhere in the quilt, but I think it really sets it off. Also, it's what I had on hand. It has definitely been chilly here (in the 50s! in June!), so it was a good time to curl up and stitch that binding. This finished at just about 60 by 70 and will go to my older daughter when we visit her later this summer. She originally gave me the fabric, so that's only fair. And this quilt suits her personality so well.
The other thing I have to show for this week is just this one green Odd Fellow's block for RSC14:
One more block and I am all caught up! I need to find a yellow that I like for this month's. I must use up all my yellows, because I really don't have a lot of yellow scraps, at least not enough to make a 12 inch block.
That was what I finished this week! This weekend I really have to go fabric shopping. Such a chore, I know. Seriously, I have been using fabric up at an alarming rate, and I need to replenish the batiks and get some backings. Plus, I hear that there's a new quilt shop around here and it's only right that I go and support a local business. You should go out and do the same this weekend!
Happy Father's Day and lots of love to all the dads out there. I won't get to see my dad, but I will get to talk to him, and I'm pretty sure we'll have a conversation about home improvement projects. He's always up to something. Which I guess is a dad's job, after all.
Linking to the awesome Sarah and Amanda, and also to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Have a great weekend!
