I am determined to finish the last quilt of this year's Cotton Robin this weekend. After I finished the quilting, I went looking in the purple bin of stash fabrics for binding ... but none of the purples were quite right. Turquoise was another possibility, but when I auditioned from turquoise fabrics, they all felt like too much turquoise. And then I found a small piece of this hand dyed, hand screened fabric.
The splotchy mix of purples and turquoise made me think of old Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercials - "You got chocolate on my peanut butter!" I think it's going to be perfect.
We can't reveal the little round robin quilts until they have all been finished and returned home–probably sometime in July–but here's a peek of the corner of this one, with the binding, ready to go.
This will be my Slow Stitch Sunday project later today.
