End of spring beauty & A small quilt finish

The lilies are fabulous to see every day out the window :)

Krista's baby boy quilt (1 year old now) finished - front & back. Machine sewed on bias binding for the second time on a quilt. It seemed to be a good choice for this purpose (likely lots of washing) and was a challenge to myself to improve skills. Worked on it with moral support (and a reminder how to connect binding ends together) from Mary at a sew in at Quilters Corner. Glad to be finished! They are amused by me as I say I only bring things I don't want to work on to the "sew ins." This is because I need moral support and no distractions or place to divert my attention when I run into snags or just plain don't find this aspect of quilting any fun at all. (Like bindings!) Although I am pleased with the final result and look of the narrow binding.

Oh, those lillies are GORGEOUS......they must make you smile.

I'm so tickled that you finished this little quilt. It's what first inspired the quilt that I made for my aunt Edith. I especially love that you pieced the back with leftovers from the top.

It looks great and you met THIS deadline (one year old ). Congrats on coming up with a good way to finish things that just aren't the most fun part of quilting.
