Binding "Boxes of Roses"

Yesterday my husband and I went cross country skiing with my aunt KK.  After, we swung by a quilt store so I could try to find a fabric to bind the "box of roses" quilt.  Here we are taking a break from skiing.

Here are the goodies that I ended up getting.  The upper right fabric is for the binding.  It was in the 30% off rack!  I just loved the black and white fabric too!  I thought it would go so well with the white bright-dotted fabric that I got the other day that I showed you.  And the other fat quarter I just had to have and threw it into my pile as I was checking out.  You know what that's like.

So today I decided to put the binding on the quilt.  I prepared the binding and began to sew it onto the quilt when Bentley decided to join me.  When I say join me, I mean he decided to lie on top of the quilt.  I just had to get up and take a picture.  

He eventually got bored and decided to play with a spool of thread that he found (he somehow finds every spool of thread I have if it's not in something or hidden.  

I'm hand sewing the binding to the back right now.  I hope to have it done in the next day or two.  Yay, yay, yay!


  1. I love that black and white too! Great find. Gee, Bentley is just like my Rolo, he loves to lay on what I am working on. I think, he thinks he is being helpful.

  2. My cat Marvin does the same thing, when i am sewing she has to jump right up on the material and be as close as she can. One big helper she is.
