Because even if I have made a quilt using Moda fabric that was purchased several years ago, I can almost always find a newer fabric line that coordinates perfectly. Take this Gold Rush quilt for instance. I purchased a big fat quarter bundle of Moda Autumn Breeze five or six years ago (sometimes it takes a looong time for me to figure out just the right project for the fabrics I
hoard have on hand). I finally finished this top and picked it up from the quilt shop today, but didn't have enough fabric left over for the binding...rats! Well, I looked around the quilt shop for something that would work. Check this out...
It is a newer version of Moda Autumn Breeze! Although the print is a little different, it coordinates beautifully, and check out the cool leaves on the selvedge :)
So, when I got home I made 470 inches of binding...
Attached it to this monstrous quilt and settled into the couch for some hand sewing.
Sitting here with the air-conditioning blasting and dreaming of autumn.
Hope you are staying cool wherever you are and praying for all the folks suffering in the terrible heat wave gripping such a large portion of the country.
