A long time coming

I'm not sure why it took so long to finish The Old Girl.  I picked her up after almost two years of neglect, then got to the binding stage.  Halfway through hand-stitching the binding down, I inexplicably stopped working on her.  But she's done now and looking very beautiful on my little lady's bed.

Now that's done, time to turn my attention to an estate sale find from three years ago desperately in need of cushions (originally blogged here).  Pieces of Trellis from AMH's Drawing Room have been cut and are ready to be assembled.  But first this had to be made:

First attempt at making a bias binding for my first attempt at making my own piping.  I hated every minute of it, but had no choice as I couldn't find this color piping in this particular width.  Since this is going to be used with home dec weight fabric, I went with bottom weight sateen to make the binding a little heftier.

This weekend I'll tackle the making of the zipper panels, then let the cushion cover assembly commence!

  1. Well if you keep working up that WIP pile at this rate you'll have caught up about, err, 2020 ;o)

  2. Yay!! You finished and it looks great!! : ) I'm excited to see that chair. Ya know, whenever it's done. Hehe.

  3. Your quilt looks great! I'm looking forward to seeing how you redo the chair, too! I'm with you about piping -- I hate how much fabric it takes to cover it, and then it's so project-specific that any extra goes to waste. It does make things look really nice, though! >_<


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
