Here is my second finish. I finished sewing the binding this morning. It is a wallhanging that was featured in a magazine. One of our customers at work brought in a copy of the directions from her magazine and generously allowed me to make a copy. It is called Spring Skinnie and was in Quiltmaker Magazine March/April 2013. I have it hanging here on my front door. It is bright and colorful and so happy! I love it! If I didn't have more obligations right now I would make another one because it was fun to make. The flower and the flower pots were raw-edge appliqued to the background fabric, then the blocks were added as a border. I free-motion quilted only the background so the flower and pots would pop. I am rather proud of this.

I am making a quilt that involves applique in the embroidery hoop. It is called Cat's Meow and it is from Lunch Box Quilts. They have the pattern in a throw-sized quilt and also in a wallhanging. I am making the throw for myself but I have already made the wallhanging for my friend Pat. I wasn't able to report it as soon as it was finished because I hadn't given it to her yet. Well, I gave it to her on Thursday so now I am reporting it. Unfortunately, I didn't think to get a picture of it so I can't show it here. But when I finish the throw I will show a picture of it. The wallhanging is just a smaller version.

I have been desultory about writing this blog lately. This is, however, my 200th post to the blog. I will try to do better in the future.
