I'm putting on the binding FIRST

I have managed to machine sew on the binding on my BLUE HEARTS quilt.
I want to draw on a quilting pattern into the border and I didn't want it getting cut off when I trimmed up the quilt. So, as usual, I have done it back to front and now I am hand stitching it down today.
A relaxing day for Slow Stitching Sunday

My friend has sat down with me and done some hand quilting on her hexagon quilt.
This is her 1st quilt done by hand.
I'll post a photo of the whole quilt another day.

My hubby decided to surprise me and turn up at my friends for the weekend.
He brought some mail with him.
It was my block from Vicki from Albury. We were partners in the 12" block swap over at  QBSA
