bindings!

I spent yesterday and today making bindings and doing the machine work for finishing 5 quilts, simplifying the task a bit by using the same Kona Rich Red fabric for 4 of the quilts. I've usually used prints for bindings, but have been drawn to solids lately. LOTS of handwork to do. My sisters and mother and I plan to gather at a cabin for a few days early Christmas week. I told them to bring their thimbles! (They don't know it yet, but each will go home with a quilt.)

What a wonderful gift. How big are your quilts and how do you decide who gets which quilt? Or do you make each with a specific recipient in mind?

What a wonderful way to gift quilts. I love the Chicken quilt. Need to put that on my to do list. Have a very Happy Holiday Season. Hugs
