Gobble Gobble Table Topper - WIP

The binding is now sewn on the quilt top, now for some slow hand stitching of the binding to the back of the quilt.  I actually like this process.  Those are regular hair clips that I bought from the night market to help keep the binding down before I stitch them.

As I have found out there are many ways to finish a binding so I think I should give them all a try, just to see which I like best.  This time I used this tutorial on YouTube by Marci Baker.

I've been working on the Thimbleberries Village quilt since January this year and have set a goal of 1 block a month.  So far I've only got 5 blocks done :( I should get up to speed on it again.  So here's all the fabric gathered for Block 6 called Log Cabin Lane.
I live in the back room which faces a row of houses.  There's a back lane that separates our houses.  Sometimes I just look out to see if their any critters roaming around.  Birds, cats and dogs show up regularly.  This fellow came over this morning.  He's got such nice white socks!


  1. Very cool tute. That looks like such a clever way to get a perfect seam. Have fun with the hand stitching.. not my favorite part.

    Wow, Mr Kitty looks to be some sort of mix of snowshoe/ siamese/ burmese.
