A Finish – Making Music

I’m trying out the name ‘Making Music’ on my mini hex quilt. I won’t know if it sticks until I find my Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric.  It can’t be far as I just make a label over the weekend.

This little quilt measures 10-1/4″ wide and 14″ long. I used Legacy 80/20 batting and 40 wt Glide in Strawberry Blonde. The quilting design is All That Jazz — or at least part of it.

Since I quilted it and it has those weird angles, I opted for a facing instead of a binding.

Speaking of binding I have 5 quilts which need to be bound.  Last night I prepped my binding then wound it up for easier handling.  The light blue, green , and pink bindings are all cut at 2-1/4″ width of fabric.  The blue and green stripe is a batik cut length of fabric.  I only cut it at 2″. The last binding has a faux lavender piping.  The piping was cut at 1-1/2″ and the binding 1-1/4″.

Here they are sitting on their respective quilts.

The flower of the day is Portulaca.  I bought it off the clearance rack because it said it was a “trailing annual”. I see now on the tag that it blooms in the summer and fall.  Seeing those pink and orange flowers was a nice surprise this morning.
