In case you wonder where I have been I had an unexpected emergency and had to take last week off. It's all good. What I did get done was the double wedding ring quilt! Yeah!!!! It turned out 59" x 91". I labeled it, washed it, and it is now ready to be turned over to the owner. The colors are dark in this picture, but I was just not that concerned about a perfect picture. I am just glad it is done and soon to be out of my life!
I will show you a couple before pictures. This is how the quilt was bound when it was handed over to me. Yes, someone rolled the backing over the front and zig zagged it!
How I bound it. I think a bit better if I do say so myself!
These pictures show how badly the quilt was pieced and it was falling apart. I think this was the last quilt the lady had pieced and her skills had diminished. I had seen another quilt the lady had made and it was impeccably made.
I did also manage to get the 16 patch quilt pin basted.
I made a step up box out of scraps.
And decided to get out an old piece of cross stitch that needed finished. I have no idea why I didn't finish it in 1999. I will work on this a lunchtime since I have the DWR quilt done. Here is where it was and where I am at now.
We did get some much needed rain yesterday. We could use more, but at least the plants got a drink of rain water instead of tap water.
