Design Wall Monday and Give Away!

I decided to hand stitch as many bindings as I could during the Olympics, because I watch a ton of the events on TV. Here is the evidence. I have four quilts bound. I tend to round the corners like this one. I used the backing fabric as a binding for this one

And this one.
Here is another one I bound!

This is the oldest from 2008, bound!

I added Mario to the Super Mario Quilt along, for two finished in this project. I started the next block, a Goomba mushroom. I am really having fun with making this pixel quilt, just litttle squares and using a color chart! Easy peasy!!

It's 48 outside this morning. A wonderful relief to the 90 degree weather last week, so glad I have so many quilts made. Sigh, the leaves are showing signs of turning colors. Those burning bushes have red tips on the leaves, it always happens the beginning of August. But do we have a jammed packed fall!!

If you want to see all about the give away and sign up go here. I would love to have you sign up because there are just 10 entered in the giveaway, you have a great chance of winning!!

You've been busy! I haven't been binding during the Olympics but I've done some knitting and stitching here and there.

48 sounds heavenly! We're still months away from any time without the AC on. I really love the cooler temperatures and having the windows open!
