Winter Solstice Finish

In between squally rain showers I nipped out next to our pond to photograph the finished Winter Solstice Quilt.

Our weather is influenced yet again by another East Coast low. I have seen the sun blink out from clouds twice in the past 5 days. It makes for some wet photography.

I used the very clever Quick Binding Quilt method by Quilting in the Rain (cooincidence?) to bind this lap quilt. Lao Lao leaves to go home to China next Thursday and so I am glad to have in done in advance.

This week Sunday Stash celebrates ONE year with a little give-away. For a chance to be in the running, you just need to link up a recent fabric, notion, book etc. purchase. See you back here on Sunday for that.

How did you go this week? Any finishes? I may see you over at TGIFF.


  1. Beautiful! Love the colors and how well they blend!

  2. So beautiful! Love the photo by the pond as the colours in your quilt are quite nature-inspired.

  3. Lovely quilt! And your photos are just beautiful!

  4. Pretty! LOVE the backing fabric :) See you on Sunday!

  5. I really like this. Normally soft colours like this aren't my thing, but this is so lovely and relaxing. I think the aqua-ish green, stormy blue, and coral blocks are what make this really work and not just fade away. Beautiful, so glad I've seen it :)

    1. Aw thanks for that. I think you are right. The solids really nail down the prints from the charm pack.

  6. Great finish and lovely photos! Rain is my favourite weather.
    I will have to try that binding trick!

  7. very pretty quilt! I love the photo banner on your blog. It looks so peaceful!
