My Double Four Patch quilt came back from my friend Eleni. So grateful to her for her quick and wonderful long-arm quilting!

I chose a dark blue fabric for the binding.

I prepared the binding strip. As I was in a hurry (my sister was coming soon to Greece to take delivery of it), I had no time to proceed as usual : machine sewing on the right side and then hand sewing on the back, so I decided to try, for the first time, machine sewing on both sides. For this I proceeded the opposite way from what I usually do :

I have been sewing the strip on the wrong side and then turning it on the right side, sewing very carefully on it. The end result is quite satisfying from my point of view.

Herringbone Scarf and Pears

Pears

I knitted a scarf for a dear friend. This was the project I talked about in this post.
The pattern comes from Purlsoho.
I used the yarn Rowan Kid Classic and needles 5mm.
Those pears come from the biological market, they are so wonderful and the taste reminds me of my childhood when all the fruits were so tasty! I took this picture because I like the contrast between the light and the dark on them on my dining-room table.
