A Finish!!

I am really trying my best to keep busy and not have idle hands!

 I managed to sew the binding on this reversible quilt and then asked my mom very nicely if she will do the handwork and sew it down... I really didn't feel like fiddly work..... she brought it back the next day: done and dusted! I made this quilt for my kitchen and it looks very pretty under the parrot's cage!( It is covered by a protective see through plastic cover!)

While my mom was sewing the binding down, I unpacked my hand sewing project and got going!

I needed like a total of 5 cream triangles and I just started hand stitching and VERY quickly produced those last 6 cream triangles! (each triangle consists of 3 pieces).
I even made started making half triangles to fill in every second row! I 'm surprising myself!
Now I am piecing the cream triangles to the hexagons as I have a moment sitting in front of the TV with my husband! Really enjoying it!


  1. Hello! I just love your quilts! Wish I was a parrot in your home! haha

  2. I like what you did with those string blocks. Someone donated some string blocks for Sandy relief quilts, not enough for a quilt, and I've been wondering what to do with them - maybe I'll try something like this. Be well!

  3. I am so envious of your hand sewn quilt! Awesome job!!!! It looks amazing! Great color choices too! Is there a pattern for this? I'd love to try and make one myself!
