Birdie Quilt WIP (The Extended Disco Version)

More Birdie quilt work in progress pictures because I decided I didn't like the binding fabric I got for it. Well not so much dislike... more of a seething hatred. I was asked to use a brown dot for the binding, and it just turned out to be too dark for this quilt. And I hate the feel of it too. So, no.

Anyway, here's the Birdie quilt all quilted and ready for binding.

I've nicknamed it the Pepto quilt because of all the pink dot fabric I used to sash it. I've been staring at it far too long to have an objective view anymore. I think I like it?

This is the back. I like the back. Even though it's still quite Pepto-ish.

And here's the current state of my studio. I haven't done a damn thing to it except shift the two tables at 3am this morning so that they sit right up against one wall. What, you don't move furniture at 3am?

I think the tables like that would serve me better... there was a huge square of unused table the way it was arranged before.

Anyway, have a great Halloween everyone! We're going to a memorial service this afternoon. Fittingly morbid, huh?

Nice pepto quilt! I'm not a big fan of the color pink, but it looks really nice. Move furniture at 3 am? I do.. What else am I to do at 3 am? Sleep is for normal people.

Say I am up sometimes at3AM doing strange things like taking pics and blogging and sewing so I don't think any thing about that. Your pink quilt is very nice.

I am having a monthly giveaway on my blog to showcase my Etsy shop. Go check it out and sign up for some fun.

Love the quilt! That little border of white really makes the blocks pop.

I'm totally an in the middle of the night furniture mover too...I guess I just get extra bursts of energy after midnight. I think the tables will give you more space this way.
