Binding up a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project

I'm looking forward to some time in "my" easy chair today while I hand stitch the binding for one of last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects.  
I'm going to wait for the full reveal until after the binding is stitched down.  I gave this to my local longarm quilter, Cindy Braiwick, to quilt for me.  She has an amazing ability to take my ideas for quilting and turn them into wonderful designs and textures.  I found the perfect binding fabric maturing in my stash (Kaffe Fassett's Roman Glass), so no excuses about needing a trip to the fabric store!

I haven't made time for hand stitching for a couple of weeks, so I'm cheerfully linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching in honor of St. Patrick's Day!  


  1. I'm stitching down binding too today! It is so relaxing, maybe I will even take a bit of a nap!

  2. Can't wait to see! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that fabric for the border and binding...YUM!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching and sharing your progress!

  3. I'm binding today too! Pretty binding.

  4. I can't wait for the reveal. Looks like lovely quilting and a wonderful binding choice.

  5. What I can see is absolutely lovely! Good luck getting through the binding work today.:)
