September Goal

Gadzooks--where did the summer go???
I can't believe it's time to decide on a finish for September, but here it is...
Yes! I'm finally going to get Stonefield's quilted before it ends up in some obscure storage bin.
It's my One Monthly Goal for September.

I'm a little intimidated, but I also think it will be a fun top to quilt.
The thread I ordered has yet to arrive in the mail, so I can't start in right away though. 

In the meantime, I may as well make the binding.
I've pretty much decided to use this stripe.
It doesn't look so great with my border fabric, doesn't it?

But...if it's on the bias, I think it will work.
 I wanted something subtle, and thought about using the border fabric on the bias as the binding. In the end, I decided it may be too subtle--lol!  Maybe a blue flange will be tucked in--or maybe not. My feeling is to not draw too much attention to the outer part of the quilt and distract from the blocks. 

I really like it with my "Hits the Spot" Grunge backing, for sure!

  3. What a lovely quilt, Karen! You must have really enjoyed making it, each block its own little project. May I ask, how long has it been in the making? I like the bias binding idea. I look forward to seeing it all quilted up!

  6. Stonefield will be a worthy finish for Sept. You'll have lots of opportunities to quilt different ideas in all those blocks. You can never go wrong with a striped binding.

  16. Karen, your choices are inspired! This is going to be so magnificent. Did I mention I have the Stonefields pattern in my file cabinet...do not feel my skills are there yet, but some day. I will reread your Stonefields posts. Have fun with the quilting.
