This Blog Post Brought to You by the Letter B

National Quilting Day isn't celebrated in Santa Fe, so my solo plan for the day is to spend the day in my sewing space and move some recent projects forward by tackling some of the B-tasks:

Adding BORDERS
Preparing BACKINGS and BINDINGS
and maybe even BASTING a quilt sandwich or two.

The borders on my little (24 inches square) Clover Blossom are complete and it's ready for it's backing and some scrappy purple binding to be made ready –that's my Scraphappy Saturday contribution this week.

The Subliminal Alphabet quilt has been assembled, backing cut and binding fabric identified ... so I've made some progress there, too.

This one will get a dark teal binding.

Next up is one of the workshop projects from last fall and binding for the scrap bag challenge. I think that's everything that's been "hanging out" in my sewing room. Then maybe I'll organize the shelves and put away all the fabric that's out because I thought it might be used in one of these unfinished projects ... but first, I'm going to employ another B-word and take a BREAK for lunch.

Your Clover Blossom quilt has a wonderful pieced background, love the choice of colours in there.
You have used two of my favourite colours - purple in the blossoms and lovely aqua/teal in Subliminal Alphabet.

There could not be a better flower block for the purple than the clover blossom. The background fabrics are just right to complement the purple. Congrats on a fine job! Teal sounds like a good binding color for the alphabet quilt. Keep up the good work!

Gorgeous stuff!!! I will squeeze in a little more sewing here. I am feeling a tad guilty for tossing my little triangles in my throw away bucket!

I like your scrappy project - great borders. I also like the color you chose to go around the alphabet. I wondered what might look good with all those colors, and you found the perfect thing!
