WIP Wednesday - July 18

Attaching the binding
 My sewing machine has been humming this week in between weeding sessions in the garden and the general duties of running a household! A few weeks ago, I sent a couple quilts off to my favourite long-arm quilter, Marie of Blueberry Hill Quilts in Chestermere, Alberta and I picked them up from her on Monday.
Jack's quilt
Greenlee's quilt
The bindings are almost done and then I will work on the pillow shams. My customer wanted her children's names incorporated somehow on the quilts and we decided that quilting the names in a border would be a great touch. Next time I should include Marie in that conversation because she was the one who had to figure out how to do it and make it look great. (And she did!)
Both quilts plus pillow shams awaiting bindings
 There's just one more quilt for this order - a baby quilt for the new baby expected this fall, and that will be next up on my to-do list!

Piecefully yours,
