Binding Blues

For once I’m not feeling blue as I bind (my least favorite part of the process), but instead I’m seeing blue.  Lots and lots of blue because of the binding and the backing fabric.

Back of Trucks



I was rather confident when a friend asked me what I was doing tonight and I said, ‘I’m going to cut all the extra ‘stuff’ off my super awesome trucks quilt and get the binding on it while I watch the Wild game…at least that’s the plan.’ And I was oh so close! I would have finished it tonight but I didn’t have the right color thread.  Bummer!  Now I’m watching the Wild and they’re not doing well which is another big bummer!

I should be able to make a quick run for thread tomorrow and then hopefully finish it up before Friday. I can’t believe I’m THIS close to my fourth finish of the year and it’s only April! I only finished two in all of 2014 so I’m pretty dang impressed with myself!

I really love this quilt and can’t wait to snuggle under it. It’s a big one (88×88) so I can snuggle WITH someone under it!



About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    I love the “Trucks”. It looks so much like my ’52 Ford “Ruby”. Very cute.

    These fabrics and color palettes are so lovely. I also really hope that’s verbatim what you told your friend 🙂

  3. I love the fabric and the thread colors! Look at you using your wonder clips! Another great quilt Julie!
