WIPs With Friends

The biggest things I have been working on are actually some small things.  
I had some bee blocks for April to finish up, which I did.

Hallie was sooooo helpful! LOL

I was trying to tidy up and had some left over flannel that was not big enough to do much with so I am in the process of making some burp cloths out of them.  
I will be listing these in my ETSY shop once I have them all finished.  

Last night I was making binding for my Birdie Stitches quilt and this was my view as I was cutting.

I wanted to use the aqua gingham you see in the photo above but it was not right for the quilt.
The dominant colors are pink and orange with some green.  
I had some green gingham like the aqua but could not put my hands on it quickly. 
 I decided to look through my stash of vintage sheets and came upon this gem.  
I cut it on the bias and voila, binding!

The greens are not the same but so very little actually shows and it actually IS vintage sheet so 
I am happy with it, I think.

My friend Darla Hall did the quilting and it is phenomenal! 
 I can't wait to get the binding on it so I can have it finished now.

I used a bunch of vintage sheet FQ for the backing so I know that binding will look great with that backing too.
