Cube Lattice done!

I know I have been working on Dear Jane My Way, and I have been doing lots on it since I last posted. Enough so that it needed to be cleansed of the blue marker before it became permanent. So, it had a bath and is now drying. Since it has a wool batting, this takes a while. Soooo, I picked up the Cube Lattice mystery quilt that came back from the long arm quilters on 2 March, and bound it. I didn't just bind it, I watched Sharon Schamber's Binding the Angel videos and bound it more or less her way, not quite so neatly because after all, this is a quilt to be snuggled in the living room, and not an heirloom. If you want to look at Sharon doing her thing, check out

Guess what I am watching next? Sharon is an awesome quilter, best of show at Houston caliber. Her "Lady in Red" first caught my eye years ago, although I didn't know of her at the time. Then I saw her green lady, and just discovered that another one of her quilts was also one of my favorites at PIQF a few years back. Check out her gallery at http://www.sharonschamber.com/ Meanwhile, here is my quilt that I finished using her binding technique.
