Winners and Losers Today

The shop was quiet today. Most of South Australia was preparing and watching the AFL grand final, with one of our local team the Adelaide Crows playing the Richmond Tigers.

So this allowed me some time at the sewing machine with the radio on. Unfortunately the Crows lost but I did manage to get the binding on my Gypsy Wife Quilt after I collected it  from Val (House of Valerie) yesterday who quilted it for me. As always she has done a great job.

I went with a dark blue for the binding. So a few nights in front of the TV will see it finished off. I might take it with me on retreat next week.
 Next I did some more quilting with the Westalee rulers on a table runner that I had started quilting but didn't know what to do in the border. Today it just fell into place and with the Spin-E-Fex template I finished the quilting off and whipped on the binding.

What is this? These are strips from a Rolie Polie bundle from Penny Rose Fabrics Meadow range. I may have started sorting strips for a new project. Don't tell anyone.

Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

A day sewing is always a good day! Attaching on the binding is my favorite part of making a quilt.
