Welcome to Rainbow Hare on another Fresh Sewing Day! I’m keeping up my resolution to link up with Lynne at Lily’s Quilts every month of 2013 – so only ten more to go!
This month, as you can see from my mosaic, I’ve made one sewing case and four bee blocks and I quilted two bed quilts. I never thought I’d quilt two bed quilts in a month! That’s two thirds of my Finish-A-Long list ticked off for this quarter and this Trade Winds is today’s Friday Finish.

So at last the big Taaaaa-Daaaaa!!!
I had planned on stunning garden photos but now the snow is gone and we just have mud, mud and more mud so inside it is.

After the wonderful response when I asked what I should use to bind this quilt, I decided on grey because I didn’t have enough coordinating scraps. But then I realised that I’d have soooo many joins I decided to go for a solid and this was the only matching one I could find.
