Binding is next!

I got the rest of the 16 patch quilt quilted last night. Yeah! Swooze, I will take a picture of the back and post it tomorrow so you can see the quilting. I had some pale greenish tan fabric in my stash and it was enough for the back of this quilt so the quilting does show up nicely.

I dug around in the fabric storage room and the only wine/marron fabric I have left are these two pieces. I like this gray and navy piece and I only have a little bit of it left so I may use it up for this quilt.

I did get a bit of stitching done on that reproduction sampler. It is hard to see the ivory stitching.

It is overcast here today so maybe we will get some rain. Down south they will get too much with both of those hurricanes.

You go, Patty! This is one of my favorite 16 patch quilts you've done....I love the colors. Are you tempted to change the ivory color to something that shows up better? I completed a sampler where one color kind of disappeared and was sorry I hadn't swapped it out for a different color.

This quilt looks like it is a pretty good sized one. An August finish maybe. We're hoping for rain too. I guess it just depends on how high the arc of the storm comes up our way.

Wow, that quilted up fast!

You are moving along on this quilt. And yes, I wish we could spread the rain from the hurricane around. California could use a lot of it.
