That's what you get for not finishing

This weekend was a productive one.

We got a bunch of chores done and I managed to carve out some time to work on my creative projects.

I put most of the wild and crazy binding on the feathered arrows quilt. Since the blocks are antiques I asked my quilting buddies if it was disrespectful to spice up the quilt and put a funky outrageous binding it.

My friend Pamela said, "Well, that's what she gets for not finishing the quilt!"

I agree. Maybe I'm here to punish those who have come before me by taking their half baked projects and making crazy things with them.

If that doesn't motivate you to just finish your work in progress quilts, I don't know what will.

I got the above necklace from Nonchalant Mom, this very cool web site with super modern and hip clothes/accessories for kids and moms. The necklace itself was designed by Verre. It's just a bit of blown glass, but I'm a sucker for good color. The natural colored one is on my wish list.

How funny, I'll have to remember that lesson. Of course I wouldn't mind because finished is better than perfect. You have a pretty necklace thee.

Thank you SEW much for the Yoko Saito info. I read ALL your posts about her. I am beginning to feel like a wann-be-addict!

That's a great attitude - we can do whatever we want to with the quilts because the quilter didn't finish it, and well, we are finishing them. I'd love to see what crazy thing you did to it.

That's what I get for not keeping up with blogs.. I missed you at PIQF this year! We'll have to meet up eventually!

I can't wait to see your finished quilt. I am a huge fan of crazy bindings!
