August binding challenge

August, August, August ...... the months are flying by now ....

We are in the dog days of summer.  The garden is winding down and in a few weeks, we may start to see some leaves change colour.  As I wrote this, I got up to look out our living room window to a tree that is the first to change and ..... whew ..... not yet! 

No-blog Mary and I have chosen our designated quilts to bind.

When Mary sent her photo to me, she wrote that it is a huge quilt and it has borders on it.  She is quite surprised that it has borders because she never puts borders on quilts.  Mary just pulls quilts out of a bag and it is always a surprise to her because some she has forgotten about completely.  Hmmm ..... how old is this quilt, I wonder?  Anyway, isn't this a gorgeous scrappy pineapple quilt!

My quilt will be my Stash Buster Challenge quilt.  The top was dropped off to the LAer and I got it back a few days later.  She was going on vacation and I needed this quilt back for a gift at the end of August .... so, she quilted it for me!  How sweet is that?

Our garden is still blooming.  

Cherish your day .... cherish your life!

Your garden looks great - so different to when we first saw the hill, ten years ago now! Are you using the stripe for the binding?

Have fun with your binding.
I keep looking at our trees for signs of life and yesterday I saw green!

Your garden on the hill is a source of much enjoyment. Yes it is all sliding by so fast.
Love that quilt of yours you showed in the last post...heavenly colour and also no blog Mary's binding...sweet.
I can get quite hung up on choosing the binding.
