Running with Scissors

I feel like that has been my life the last couple of weeks. Hosting three picnics in one week, starting the Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild, then a quick trip to Levittown, NY for work (6 hour drive), PHEW. You might think that I didn't quilt, but I DID! I completed two projects and at least started my homework this week.

My homework for Leah Day's QAL was stitching cucumber vine.
Front (Wonky/improv. quilt)
I have to say, I love cucumber vine. I didn't have a chance to stitch much, but what I did, was lots of fun. I will be using that design again. (No questions for Leah this week, just too busy to think! )
Finally took the time to bind this little painted quilt.

Added this cool faux piped binding to finish my QAYGFMQQAL - Sea Glass quilt. I'll be doing a tutorial on how to do this cool binding on Thursday.
 WIP Wednesday!
