Slow Sunday with a Finish!

It was a disappointing afternoon for New Orleans Saints football fans, but I managed to Keep Calm and Carry On with my hand stitching despite my team's embarrassing loss.  The binding on the Exotic Star quilt is now finished.  I guess I can call this my first "blended" quilt.  I still love the fabric despite my aggravation with piecing the pattern.  

Next up, another memory quilt is in the binding queue.  The quilt needs to be squared up and the binding still needs to be made, but maybe I can make time for that this week.  We'll see - I have a lot on my plate work-wise and family-wise this week, so my next hand-stitching project may get delayed for awhile.

I hope everyone is having a piece-ful Sunday.  Do stop by Kathy's blog to see what other Slow Sunday hand-stitchers are up to!
