If I have a few quiet moments today I'll begin stitching this binding in place.
I'm so glad to have finished the quilting -- big stitch with 3 strands of embroidery floss. Maybe I won't do that again.
The border on the front of this quilt is two different green fabrics. The back of the quilt has four or five different greens. And now the binding is five different greens, only one of which is on the front or back of the quilt. It's a scrappy quilt so all the greens should be fine together. At least I hope they will.
When you choose binding for a quilt do you tend to choose a fabric and color to go with the front of the quilt or the back of the quilt?
I'm linking this post to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts. Thanks for hosting, Kathy.
And for the Sabbath, one of my favorite hymns, "I Believe in Christ."
I believe in Christ; he is my King!
With all my heart to him I’ll sing;
I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; he is God’s Son.
On earth to dwell his soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead he raised.
Good works were his; his name be praised.
I believe in Christ; oh blessed name!
As Mary’s Son he came to reign
’Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all his Father hath,
Who said to men: “Come, follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be.”
I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God!
My feet he plants on gospel sod.
I’ll worship him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.
From Satan’s grasp he sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In his eternal courts above.
I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With him I’ll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
To rule among the sons of men.
Happy Sabbath to you.
