One Thing One Week Challenge

So I pledged to bind both of my S.C.A.N. quilts and as a bonus paint my Dad's barn quilt.  Well I accomplished both!  Yeah!

I hand sewed the binding on both.  SCAN is for Stop Child Abuse Now.  It is the charity that the Triad Modern Quilt Guild in NC adopted as its charity.  I bought 3 small bamboo batting very cheap from Joann's on clearance to make some quilts.  The first one I used  my ugly swoon block from the swoon quilt-along.  It is made up of a solid blue and orange from the 90s' along with some year 2000 fabric and a current obnoxious yellow and pink owl fabric.  My awesome guild mate Kelly Wood FMQ on her machine.

For the second quilt I challenged my guild to bring in a 12" star block with some orange in it.  For my birthday in May.  I then turned it into a quilt and pieced a back.  Anyia FMQ it for me.

Then for Dad's birthday I finally(after 2years of vascillating) painted a barn quilt for my Dad.  It is an original design.  One I havent submitted yet to the Accuquilt Barn quilt contest.

I had trouble with bleeding under the tape but it came out pretty good.

My Dad likes martinis so my sister gave him a new glass for Father's Day.

Nice job!! Binding by hand can take soooo long but I always find it's worth it :) I'm sure someone will be very happy with the swoon quilt, despite the crazy fabric :)
