Weekend project

I love reversible quilts! This one I started on Friday night. I finished the border this morning, Monday, and need to do the binding. It's a gift for my secret pal at work, so if someone is reading this - and you know who you are - don't tell her! lol

The Indian motif fabric I used on the front of this quilt was from a stash that was given to me several years ago. The fabric had been cut into, but I was able to fussy cut 10 of the motifs in their entirety. I think I'll use the other two and make matching pillows..maybe.

The back of the quilt is made with more donated fabric. There was so much of this fabric that I've used it in a few other projects. I quilted each square individually then put them together with the reversible quilt method I've grown so fond of. I put the borders on before quilting them because I find that if I quilt them separately, they're not as easy to work with as when they're already on the quilt.

Mary, I know I told you I was going to post this yesterday, but I wanted to get it done before I took another picture. I wanted to get the quilt finished so I can take it to the club meeting today. I can't decide if I want to load up my sewing machine for the project we'll be doing today. I haven't been to a meeting since the last time Judy and I stopped by for a minute. Last month I was sick and was at the doctor's during the meeting. So, I am making every effort to get there today. Time to pay my dues, too, so I need to go.

Better get going. Need to pay some bills and, if I have time, I'll put the binding on the quilt. I think I'll do a reversible binding since the colors are so different on both sides.

The quilt looks gorgeous on both sides. I have tried that method once but should give it another go soon.
