The blocks for Cheerio were cut out in January 2015 and they were all sewn together in July this year.  Sarah did the quilting and the quilt arrived back at my place on Tuesday, along with Starlight.  I made the binding on Tuesday night and just as I'd started to sew it to the quilt there was a total blackout for over 3 hours so I spent some time trimming the two quilts by candlelight.

Sewed the binding on yesterday morning before work and then stitched it down last night while catching up on some tv shows.

I love the modern loops quilting - it gives the quilt such a great texture without overwhelming the block design.

NSW had a long weekend last weekend - so good to have time to spend with the family (one little sweetheart had her first sleepover at Nanna's) and also time in my sewing room.

Over the last couple of weeks I've sewn two other quilt tops together, Spool Sampler and Swell.

They both need borders before they go to the quilter.

And I've started another two scrappy quilts hoping to use up more of the stash.

Another fun weekend coming up.  Basketball season starts tomorrow night, lunch with The Schoolgirls on Saturday and my little sweetheart is coming for another sleepover.

The Cheerio quilt is beautiful! You must have good eyesight to be able to trim back your quilt by candlelight!
