Thought you might like to see another finish.  I made this quilt, I called "Buttons & Bows", in 2013 and it was beautifully quilted by Kathy Mundy of Oakville earlier this year.  I finally finished sewing on the binding so I can add another finish to my list.
Just as I was feeling good about finishing all those bindings, Irene sent me an email to tell me the last of my 2013 quilts is ready to be picked up.  Oh no, another binding job to be done!  I really must be disciplined about this, I can't let them pile up again.

DH and I were busy in the garden yesterday, planting some new Hostas, a lilac, and a few other bushes, the names of which I can't remember.  It's starting to look quite nice.  I'll try to get some photos later, that is if they survive. Gardening doesn't come naturally to me, it's more a trial and error kind of thing, mostly error! lol

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Bye for now.

I finally have some photos to show you.  After much procrastination, I finished sewing the binding on three of the quilts I made last year.  I still have one more to go, and another one that is still at the quilters.
I always make the binding when I finish the quilt top, thinking it won't take me so long to get it finished when I get it back from the quilters, but it isn't working!  These have been sitting around since January. lol

This is the front and the back of the quilt I made for my brother.
The last time he came for a visit he complained that I've never made him a quilt, so here it is!

This is the front and the back of another log cabin quilt I made, trying to use up some of the neutrals I've collected over the years.  Both of these quilts were beautifully quilted by Irene Brayne of Braynewave Quilting.

This last quilt is yet another one trying to use up my stash of 1930s reproduction fabrics.  Kathy Mundy quilted this one, and it looks fabulous!

I still have 3 quilt tops folded up in the closet waiting to be quilted, but they need custom quilting so I'll have to save up a few more pennies before I can get them done.

Bye for now.  Hope you all have a great weekend.
