No Bindings in April

I sewed up a quilt top for yet another batik gift quilt in April and completed two rag quilts (displayed here on our new Polywood rocking chairs :-)...but no bindings were needed for them.
A friend of a friend had passed the blocks along for these after she was no longer interested. So I sewed them together and then clipped all the edges. It's still kind of interesting to me how the unraveling makes such a fun, soft edge.
(But not interesting enough to want to make more of these...even with the right snippers that clipping is tedious!)
The purple and red one is just a yard square but the pink and green is large enough to go to Em' Scrapbag for a Hands2Help quilt.
A new edition of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks was previewed by the designers of the blocks. I was a luckypup winner of a copy for my own. Belinda Karls-Nace of Blue Ribbon Designs was the designer who picked my name and sent me a copy. She designed Sunshine and Daisies. Thank you, Belinda :-)

Things to do this month...which is flying by rather quickly!...
Finish the quilt top with Janet Clare fabrics :-) that I'm working on, quilt the two tops, sew up another scrap quilt for Hands2Help and get it quilted...and get bindings on all 3! Not sure I can pull that off but I will give it a go.
Happy Stitching!


  1. It`s absolutely beautiful!

  2. Congrats on the win!

    The rag quilts are very cute. I've never made a rag quilt...my hands hurt just thinking about all that snipping...and I've got lots of small what-am-I-going-to-do-with-this-batting pieces that would be perfect.

  3. I never had the time to enter to win a copy and need to find time to go get me a copy! Congrats on your winning!!!

    I made a rag quilt years ago...and it is my family's favorite for actually using all the time. It resides on my couch in the living area. You'd think with all the quilts this house has....but nope...rag quilt is the fav for comfort.
