Tablemats and Birthday

This is a quilt I have made for my sister's 50th B'day. It is a bit random, but I think she will like the fresh summer colours. Wondered what to bind it with, pink, turquoise, any suggestions.

These two lovely swans look like they are out for a romantic dinner for two on our local lake. They are two of many this year. We had lots of Graylag geese too this past few years, but I can only see one couple this year. Maybe the lake was getting overpopulated, and they went to pastures new.

I made some tablemats and a runner for my youngest D. Look closely Jess, and you will see I used your lovely gift of fabric to bind them. It was the perfect colour.
It was a lovely sunny Spring day or a few, so I took the stitching outside and did the binding there. In the meantime, I am getting along with my Pond House BOM. I enjoy the hand applique when I am doing the school run, and waiting in the car for my grandchildren :-) Love to all. B.
