OMG for October

Just a short post for today. One Monthly Goal (OMG) has been going since January, but this is my first time participating. This month I really want to get the binding sewn onto my Cardinal Stars quilt. I quilted it six months ago, and it has been languishing because a) summer is too hot to sit with a big quilt in my lap, and b) I want to make a fancy two-colour binding, and I haven't been 100% sure of how I want to do it.

But, now the weather has cooled off, and I think I have a reasonable plan. The binding strips were cut long ago, and when I opened the box, I was surprised to see that I even ironed the red ones in half already! So I am primed for success. :D

Here's the before photo:

  1. ooolala, I love that binding fabric! That would have disappeared right into another project around here. If you are like me, it is a good thing you cut and saved it with the top! Really, it is so sweet with the cardinals, and with the yellow accent as well, can't wait to see!

    1. Thanks, Kathi! I'll be holding my breath to keep that bright yellow straight, but it will feel great if it works!

  7. OMG seems a good way to focus on getting projects completed. Good luck on this one - though it looks like you should achieve it pretty easily.
