I thought I would do a post on my twin quilt finish. This is Springbrook named after the fabric line.
I love how the name reflects the water and spring flowers and the freshness of the colors.

No, not a new purchase. ( I have visited a few quilt shops this summer though.) I have the beginning of a new project to show.
I have been sewing away at it for a couple of weeks. ( This was the project that I was cutting/trimming on when I sliced my fingernail. No fabrics were injured or dripped with blood while the injury happened.)
The pattern is called Bitcoin by Bonnie Hunter. Bitcoin pattern
Kathy of Kathy's quilts in Canada who showed the beginnings of her RSC project where she was using the July color of purple for a few rows. I checked it out and fell in love with it for all my scrappiness accumulating. Kathy has also added more for August and I think it will be a very colorful quilt.
These are the start of my new addiction using strips I had hanging around. I am not much of an organized scrap girl. I feel I don't ever really know pattern or size I am looking for. So I save my pieces in whatever size they are.

Where has the time gone? I started this post 2 weeks ago, but am only now finishing it. UGH!
Good news: I got back two of my finished tops from my longarmers. So I have been working to add the binding. Lots of steps and looooooonng sides as one is 90 inches square and the 2nd is a twin 90 inches long. This is TIC TAC Go! I love a wool batting and to have the pattern spread out so that it is puffy.
Bad news! A rotary cutting accident. Seriously after 35 years of quilting!
I immediately called for my husband and off we went to the doctor's office.
Bleeding like a sun of a gun, I just wanted pain killers and someone to take care of it.
No stitches, I just needed to stop the bleeding as I slit a good chunk of my finger nail and it ripped off the top side of my finger. Several injections of pain killer worked.

I feel like I have accomplished a lot over the weekend.
I totally finished the graduation quilt top. This photo does not show the beautiful borders on the sides.
Totally brings all the colors together. It feels so good to get this top DONE! I will have to try outdoors for photos tomorrow. Not enough light. This is hanging from our upstairs.
