Bound With Ribbons

I had a little “waste not, want not” talk with myself. Many quilts are stacked up, waiting to be bound. I dreaded the time spent cutting strips, much less choosing the fabric to make binding. “Self, use your leftover ribbon,” I said.

I ran out of blue ribbon for my Cuba quilt, so finished it with gold.

This quilt was buried in the middle of the pile. I ran out of brown ribbon when I started and didn’t get back to it. There was still gold ribbon on the spool, so I finished it, too.

The pink quilts were part of a series that I intended to bead. I’ve started the beading, but the exact right design hasn’t revealed itself yet. Until it does, I’ll keep the quilts next to me on the couch and add beads as the mood strikes (or the TV show gets boring).

Luck and wisdom!
