The Almost Completed Never-Ending Quilt

The quilting is finished, the binding made and stitched to the front and tacked down on three-quarters of the back, but I just got too tired to complete the binding last night.  I’ll finish it today and we’ll hopefully be able to get a really good photograph out on the roof garden.  These pictures don’t really show the true colours as they were taken quite late at night with the flash on.  The binding fabric was just the right choice.  I like the look of it both on the front and the back.

Monday was nowhere near as hot as it has been the past couple of weeks.  Both cats got in some windowsill time again.  First Lester.

And then Smudge.

  1. You must be so happy to be finally done Cathi! It is beautiful…really lovely…yep, that’s quilt envy sneaking in there! LOL! Gotta go fabric shopping with you sometime and let you pick the fabrics…I love the ones you used in this quilt but at the fabric shop, they wouldn’t even register in my mind….weird, huh!

  4. Oh Cathi, this is lovely. Like everyone else, I can hardly wait to see the whole quilt. Hopefully it isn’t raining there like it is here, so you can get a good picture today. I am sure the boys would love to try it out. (grin) Winona
