Friday Night Sew 'n' Tell

For the Friday Night Sew-In I made binding for my Sudoku Quilt...

I picked it up from my Long Arm Quilter during the week, I let her talk me into trying a new panto called splat(it kinda goes with the flowers) and I chose a green thread!  That is so out of my comfort zone, but I think I'm rather fond of it all the same. We had trouble finding a backing to match, we chose one that had most of the colours in it and I liked it but now that I've got it home I'm not so sure.
I will share a pic when I've sewn the binding down.

Bev from wrote on her blog the other day about being grateful and asked the question 'What are you grateful for?' It can sometimes be a hard one to answer, we have so many things to be grateful for and it is so easy to take things for granted.  Today I am thankful we live in a country where we are not persecuted for going to church, for a nice warm fire to snuggle up next to, for my family who are happy and healthy, for friends and relations who just drop by for a cuppa. 

What are you grateful for?

That quilt certainly looks different for you, I hope you come to love it. I didn't manage the FNSI, I was so wesry after my day at the Festival of Quilts I was in bed by 7 p.m! I have so many things to be grateful for, I just feel so blessed but I think at the moment I am most thankful for the wonderful people in my life.

Hello Michelle, I am sure you will grow to love the colours in your quilt. I am so glad you have some wonderful things to be grateful for.
Happy Monday.

Your quilt looks awesome, can't wait to see it when you get your binding on. Aren't FNSI nights great, I feel like I have 'permission' to get busy, even though I know I could do it any other night I like, I just seem to enjoy it more! Crazy, I know.
