Repeating the binding

   I loved the flange binding so much that I did on the 9 patch quilt that I wanted to try it again.  So the small  wall hanging of raw edge roses with string blocks was ready to quilt.   Easy  meandering quilting over most of the quilt.








  The corner areas were wide open and I filled those with some feathers.  The flange binding frames it so cute!











    The only thing left to add is a label and give this a good wash to fluff it up and fray those edges.

  The report from the ophthalmologist was good!  With my old glass the left eye has 20/20 vision and 20/30 today in the right eye.....if I shifted and moved my head to find a clear visual spot.   He was very impressed with the improvement and progress, and we talked about the increased B-12 injections, and other co-factors I am taking.  So things are on the right track.....big sigh of relief.
Yesterday was one year since I was diagnosed and any  treatment began.   Thanks to all for the support and positive encouragement.
Happy stitching.

  4. Such good news on your visit with the eye doctor!
    Through all this, Debbie, was there one single diagnosis, or was it a perfect storm of different things that caused your health to stumble?
    I have to say that your little frayed flower quilt looks so sweet. And the flange on the binding is a lovely, delicate touch.

  5. Congratulations on a good improvement. I hope it continues to get even better. You have better vision than me now. My left eye is my good eye too.

  6. The binding looks great (as does the whole quilt)! I was thinking of you today, when I found a note about your carpel tunnel surgery, last fall. It's been a rough year for you. Glad things are looking better.

    Has it really been a year? You have made amazing improvement. I hope it continues!

  8. So glad the report from the ophthalmologist was a good one. That's got to make you feel so much better to hear that progress is still being made. Gosh, it doesn't seem like it's been a year since the diagnosis. Your flange on that pretty little quilt was perfect for it. Your quilting on it is perfect!
