I spent some time on the road recently, and hand quilted half of this quilt. Also...I bound it. I apparently really scandalized one quilter by binding it first...Giggle! I explained that I sandwich it carefully, pinning a lot, then stabilize the outside with quilting, then add the binding. It really helps keep the sandwich edges from raveling while getting tossed about it the car, on my lap, or transferred to the back seat, etc. Try it once!! It works, for it's purpose!
This quilt is on my list to finish this year. These are my bitty blocks, from a quilt along a few years ago. I am making progress...these rows are all sewn together now, and I have two more rows cut out. Super fun!!
And tada!! I finished the applique on my Dearest Boy block, A-5. I love those cherries!!! Delicious...and I have some real cherries in my fridge, to eat tomorrow, for the fourth!
