I finished binding Luke's quilt over the weekend. I ended up not hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt because I had a cute bright green thread that matched the fabric perfectly. So, instead I zigzagged the binding.
I absolutely LOVE how the green contrasts with the blue binding.
I wish it were easier to photograph large quilts. Any suggestions? Here's Luke's name quilted...
If you want to see the whole quilt top, a photo is HERE.
I'm also in a knit-a-long on Ravelry to make the Lace Ribbon Scarf. Here's my progress...
The yarn is Koigu KPPPM and is really pretty. The photo doesn't capture the color well because I took the photo in front of a window in the late afternoon. This pattern is really pretty. I love it! And it isn't very difficult. You just need to watch for the pattern changes. I had to rip back 11 rows last night because I realized I had dropped a stitch a few rows back. But since there are a lot of yarn overs I had a hard time recovering the stitches...that's why I ended up ripping back 11 rows. At least I didn't have to frog the whole thing and start over! Its on size 3 needles, so its taking a while to finish. I love it, though!
I also finished a few 9-patch blocks for Amanda Jean's Block a Day Quilt-a-long, but I don't have photos yet. I'll post those this weekend, probably. Happy Tuesday!
