A major miracle happened this morning...we actually tied the quilt and bound it! Here is the cat helping out too! And no, we didn't use white on the back! The only fabric we could find for the backing was a beautiful plum color, but it was lined with vinyl for a drapery type project. We thought, well this will be interesting, will our needles go through it? The fabric store didn't even have a needle around to let us try it before we bought the fabric. So we took a risk....
Well here we are, inside tying the quilt. Thank you Vonda, so much for coming to help at the last minute! We couldn't have done it without you!
Here is Chris and Dixie finally binding the quilt! (I told them to smile...Ha!) Actually they were very happy, we were actually going to finish!
This crazy quilt, I have to say is stunning! It is the absolute best one we have every made! Thanks Dixie, Chris, Vonda, Terri, Pat, Barb, Ginger we have a real winner on our hands!
Here it is still on the floor right after we tied and did the binding. Tomorrow I will try to get a picture of it hanging up! I will be very sad to see it leave, it is so beautiful. Off we will go in April to see it auction off!
Talk to you later,
