Three!

It's been a big week here - in quilty terms anyway!

SWOON is finished!

Don't  you just love that red and white stripe binding?


OH MY STARS is finished!



Archie gave it the seal of approval before I had even finished sewing on the binding!




The hand stitched binding on these two quilts comes in at 680 inches!!!

JOSHUA'S QUILT is finished!

I love the backyard baby fabric for the banking!

But you only get sneak peeks - these quilts are so big, that I still haven't figured out how to photograph them properly - hopefully it will be beautiful weather when we visit my parents (and their large back garden) next week and then I will be able to share the full picture with you. I would love it if you popped back!

Out of the ten finishes I listed for the third quarter Finish Along, three are now done!

By the way - did you see the Olympics opening ceremony yesterday? Some of the imagery went a little over my four-year-old nephew's head - even with the help of an ice-lolly!


Because of all of the hand stitching in that binding, I'm linking up to Handmade Parade!

Congrats!
Archie is too cute.
The opening ceremony invoked many WTF?'s from me too :)
