Round and Round I Sew

I've sewn the binding down on one a bit more than half the quilt. I'm up to the Numbers bird. I sew right to left, so I have to so the rest of that side and then all the way across the top to finish the binding. Then I have to sew to the hanging sleeve to the back of the quilt. I should deliver this quilt to the Quilted Threads quilt shop in Henniker NH on Saturday in advance of the class next week. That class is full, but I will teach another so if you are interested give them a call.

While there isn't much going on here, please go over to Brenda Suderman's blog, and see the barn she built for the Secret Society of Barn Builders.  Brenda's barn is in Manitoba Canada, and is completely different from the barns I built. Brenda has a giveaway of Julie Sefton's book, Build-a-Barn for our Canadian friends. 

Every week a SSOBB member will reveal the barn she made for Julie's book, and they are all very different. I enjoyed being a part of the SSOBB and seeing the barns come to life. Each of these blog posts will delve into further detail of the quilter's thought process of barn building, so please visit each one as they are posted. You can see the entire schedule here.

Judy in Michigan, who won last week's giveaway, asked if I could sign her book in addition to Julie, so Julie sent the book to me and I did. Now it's on its way to Michigan. Enjoy, Judy!

That is a beautiful quilting job. And your birds are brilliant colors. One of the hardest things for me is quilting. I am an appliquer and only consider the quilting as an afterthought until it is actually time to do it and then I panic. I just finished machine quilting Mountmellick and am as pleased as possible with the results tho they do not match up to a professional.
