I am a selfish selfish sewer

I have a late Christmas gift to give.  Remember the wool quilt I was working on over Thanksgiving? Well, it is completed and has been for two weeks now.  I just have to put the binding on.  And I have T-H-E perfect fabric to use:


It’s a beautiful brick red, vintage, crushed velvet that I bought over a year ago from the fabulous Urban Burp in San Francisco.

It matches the red in the quilt perfectly, is the perfect texture, has a nice tight weave on the back that will hold up well on a binding and feels just lovely in contrast with the cosy wool of the quilt.


And, I cannot seem to part with it.  It’s a gift and I am just not sure that the recipients will really use it.  I made a quilt for their daughter years ago and have never seen it since.  So, I think I have to sacrifice my artistic integrity and find another fabric put on the binding, keep the lovely creation for us and make them something else in a hurry!
