I have to warn you - this week is going to be a little light on knitting. I had a very productive weekend - just not with the yarn.
It started on Friday. Mom stopped by after work for a late lunch and brought the near finished Chocolate Covered Pinwheels quilt. As you may remember, I'd sent it off with her for quilting. She did that, and attached all the binding for me, all I had to left to do was tack it down on the back.
So I had an exciting Friday night ahead of me! I actually love doing the binding. I put on a good movie or show, and just binge watch while stitching it all down by hand.
The backing was a chunk of Holly Hobby flannel I'd bought eons ago on clearance. I'd bought two large chunks to make receiving blankets for a friend and never did. Then I plan to make Miss P and Miss Rowan jammie pants... and never did. But the flannel was the perfect size for this quilt, so it wasn't too hard of a decision to use it here. It's nice to have it out of the stash.
And as I said, the quilt was made for the livingroom. When I got the new couch, my plan was to get rid of the ugly old worn-out futon. But Dave didn't' agree he liked the futon better than his arm chair. I offered to get him a more comfy chair, but in the end he won. And I'm stuck looking at the ugly old worn-out futon for a while longer. So this quilt couldn't have been finished at a better time...
