A Bird Break

I picked up Terrazzo and Jewel Box from the longarm quilter yesterday.

You can see pictures of the whole quilt here.

 This is the fabric I will use for the binding.

This is Jewel Box, another Diamond quilt. You can also see a full shot of it here.

I picked a tomato-y red for the binding. Now I would never call a color by that kind of name. I would tell you this is a red-orange, but the clerk at QT called it tomato and I thought it was fun.

I now have four quilts that need binding. The other two are Snow Day and Easter Basket.  I made bindings for all four quilts, but I will tell you more about those tomorrow.

Whoa, what? You picked up your quilts from the longarm quilter? Are you using someone local now too?

That's a lot of binding to do. Hope you have some good tv lined up for the process.

I didn't think to enlarge the photos before my comment but I really like the quilting patterns on both of these quilts.

I adore Jewel Box. It is one of my very favorite ever quilts. I'm going to have to try some type of imitation. :)

Beautiful backing and binding.
