     I FINALLY got around to making binding for 1 quilt today and using up left over binding for another one.

     I took a string quilt off a friend's hands last week and immediately sent it to my favorite long arm quilter.    Sarah is such a great quilter and she knows what I like so for a lot of my quilts I let her pick the design.  She told me this was a new design and I was her inaugural test run..... I give her a 2 thumbs up!

     The second quilt I got binding on today was my "Have Yourself a Quilty Little Christmas" top.
I sewed along with a lot of others on Instagram back around the holidays but there was so much going on around here that I chose to hang onto it until after New Years before getting it quilted.
Sarah used a snowflake design on it and sent it right back to me but it took me 2-1/2 months to get up the energy to cut and sew the binding on.....

I love the little gingerbread man cookie, the christmas lights and all the other blocks.  I used a green, red and blue dot for the backing, but I thought it needed a striped binding so I found a green and white in my stash, which came out awesome!

To say i'm thrilled is an understatement.  I haven't had anything to do at night while I watched TV the past few weeks so these will be a welcome project.

I love the quilting Sarah did for you. I adore a striped binding, too! I wish I had joined in on that Christmas Sew-Along, but I was too overwhelmed with other stuff or something.
