I did a scrappy binding. Mostly because I didn't have enough of any one fabric for the whole thing. Besides, I think it's more fun, and this quilt told me it wanted to be fun.
You can see the great quilting that Shari did better on the back than on the busy front. And this is why I sent it to her, instead of doing it myself. Something this wonderful is way beyond my skills at this point.
Of course, the Quilt Inspector had to come and do the Softness Test.
And the Warmth Test.
The other evening, right before sundown, the rain let up some and the sun came out. When I went into the Quilt Studio, I saw a rainbow. So I ran downstairs, grabbing the camera, and out the front to see that it had become a double rainbow on the right hand end. It's faint . . . can you see it? We haven't seen a rainbow for a while now, and I love them.
I'm starting to feel a little better, but still am not quite up to snuff. I've just started on the second antibiotic. I hope this will do the trick. Right now, I have a good day about every other day. So, I'm starting to be able to get into the Quilt Studio occasionally, and I'll hopefully have something more to show in a few days!
Question: how do you feel about the new "Lightbox" feature that Blogger has started? Do you like it? I turned it off on my blog, because I don't care for it. If you prefer it, let me know. I don't think the photos enlarge well enough with the Lighbox and I like being able to see the details on the quilts.
Fall seems to be off to a good start here. It's most definitely cooler, it's been raining, and some of the trees and bushes are starting to turn color. But what really tells me that it's Autumn is that we're having lots of noisy flocks of geese flying in to land on our pond and then noisily leaving again. They don't stay long . . . they act like they're in a hurry to get South! And it's sure getting dark a lot sooner now, and I've had to put a warmer quilt on the bed. I love Autumn! Happy Fall, y'all!
