I bought 7 yards this week for the backing for Shakespeare. It is all seamed up and on the machine. The quilt is just over half way quilted so I am counting it as busted. I really don't have large pieces of fabric. Mostly fat quarters.
While at the fabric store I happened upon a couple of jelly rolls 50% off. I had been thinking of getting a couple to do the pattern Jelly Girl. So I picked them up. I think they are the Nature's Chorus  by Moda. I think I will start sewing on it when I finish quilting Shakespeare. 

I finished quilting, blocking and binding my Triple Irish Chain. I liked it so much I did the binding by hand. I think the freehand feathers in the border turned out very well. I love this old classic. I am such a traditionalist at heart. Without further ado here are some pictures:


Corner (I managed to turn the corner!)


This quilt is finish #3 for the year and (drum roll) #50 that I have quilted on my longarm. Woohoo. That is 50 over 18 months. Not bad. I think I piece more so I can have more to quilt. 

Hope you have a great quilty week.
