Today is my turn in the Color It Red Blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. The rules of the blog hop are simple, make something with the color red in it.
Well you know me and red, I LOVE it! One might even say it's my signature color. Instead of whipping up something new I thought I would use this as a opportunity to finished a UFO. One of my most recent UFO's laying on the top of the pile was my Happy Little Things BOM quilt top. I didn't get it completely finished for this blog hop but I came close.
It shouldn't take but an afternoon to complete the binding. One good movie should be enough time to hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt.
The binding might be a little bit tedious due to it being so small. The binding strips were cut at 1.5 x WOF. No, I didn't want it to be that narrow. But I wanted to use the same blue fabric for the binding that was in the quilt and I only had 10" x WOF.
Oh! I almost forgot to show you the back. I was so excited to finally be using this cute little calico. I've been hoarding it for a few years. It's nothing special, I think its a Choice fabrics print. I fell in love with in the quilt shop and had to have a few yards. Now I'm wishing I had a whole bolt.
