another one bites the dust

while in my sewing room cleaning up I found some perfect blue
fabric for binding
so what is a gal to do?  
and once made, I already had the backing and batting cut and 
this was handquilted

so I trimmed it up and started binding it
finished up half of it on Saturday
and the rest of it this morning........

I think Dunkin approves.........
or at least likes to snuggle in it
he was wrapped in my feet the whole time
I was sewing the binding on. LOL

hmmmmm.......... one little test Mom........
yep! it passes the comfy test!

and the "I can make a circle bed out of it and Phoebe
cant get me" test

it is a small quilt.......good for the lap of someone in 
a wheelchair
or for the back of the couch to keep
the cats happy

it is mainly blue but with spurts of pink here and there
so would be a baby quilt for a girl I would think

this fabric is over 20 yrs old. It is in a quilt
I made for my brothers wedding gift
many years ago.
I tied it. it was the shoefly pattern in dark blues and white
and I tied it in navy thread
my now 23 year old niece used to love to 
pick at the ties when she was little
and on the quilt
it fascinated her LOL

here is the back. an old fashioned print that was in the stash
I love that fabric 
I am an old fashioned kind of gal

here she is all folded up nice

Good job finishing up your quilt! Dunkin will be sad if you give it away.
