One wallie done

Here is one wall quilt, or it could be a table mat, that I completed this week.
I have my 4 seasons quilt top done, the binding sewn on, all I have left is to make the label and sew the binding down. I will have to sew the hanging sleeve at the time I do the binding.
The technique I tried this time was using organza over the pitcher in the quilt. I wanted the pitcher to look cool and frosty like a cool refreshing drink so I covered it with organza before I machined appliqued the pitcher to the wall quilt. I was also thinking it might give some depth to the quilt. I think it turned out nicely. You will see a picture of it when I get the binding sewn down. I had some inquiries about the technique so I thought I would talk about it today. I guess it will leave you with some suspense until I take a picture and post it.
I started on a 4th of July quilt. I decided to start a bit earlier this year. Last year I did not start until a few days before the 4th so in order to get it done before I had to work like a mad women. Who knows , that might be the case again this year, just because one starts early doesn't mean it gets done early.
Well, I guess I better get on with my day. I have much house work and errands to run. Have a good day. Dot

So pretty- I think I recognize the blue in the top wings and wish I had more of it, it is one of my favorites.

Beautiful. That would make a wonderful summer swap. I can't wait to see what you did.

I am reminded of a great saying I once heard... loosley translated it went something like: "he who starts early, gets tired early" (LOL)

The organza sounds like a clever technique
