So what's doing with you this fine Wednesday morning? I picked up my three quilts from Diana, my quilter, and have busily been sewing on bindings. The timing is perfect because we've had a bit of a cold snap.
Sure, it's not like we've got snow, but it's been pretty chilly here. It seems sunny and should be warm, but you step outside and that wind feels a little icy. Anyway, bundling up with a quilt seems perfect.
I had one of those lesson learning moments with this little stack of binding. It's made of 10 inch strips left over from my thimbles. It's very cheerful. There are a lot of seams, so I decided not to do a little test run around my quilt, pinning the binding down to make sure that there were no seams on the corners. I mean with all those seams I didn't think it could be avoided. I stitched up one side and then WHAM, right along the bottom, I run into a problem. A big chunk of binding is exactly the same as one of the thimbles. What are the odds I thought as I stopped and took out that chunk of binding and moved it to the end. Yeah, what are the odds?
The odds are pretty darn good. not a foot later it happened again.
Well you just have to laugh right? Hope the week is treating you well. xo
