On the Home stretch

The twin quilt is nearly complete. I trimmed it up last night and measured it to find out I needed an additional 40 or so inches of binding. I overcompensated just in case and added about 120 inches because you never know!

Everything is setup and ready for me when I walk in the door after work tonight.

I do need to pickup a few more boxes of Shout Color Catchers for when I wash this thing. I used so many scrap fabrics in it that I couldn’t wash any of the fabrics beforehand. Color Catchers are wonderful inventions!

And I love the label, I think it stitched out very beautifully.


  1. Your friend Ellen will be so honored and delighted with her gift. How special.

  2. Ellen’s quilt is beautiful – the front and the label on the back.

  3. The label really looks great. I like the thread you used for the satin stitch around the edges.
