I bet I'm not the only person quilting today . . .


We are having a snow day . . . and Hal is on the road until sometime tomorrow.  The house to myself and no interruptions.  I am quilting.  And I know I'm not the only one.  My sister Nancy just posted on her blog http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.ca/2013/02/snow-day.html .

One of the items on my to do list is to finish blind stitching the binding on this quilt.  My sister made the top, sandwiched it, started the hand-quilting . . . and then passed it on to me to finish.  I'm okay with that.  Hand sewing is a favourite pastime of mine.  When I finished trimming the edges of this quilt I had just enough leftover material to make matching binding.  Yeah!!  Now I just have lots of stitching to do . . . and blind stitching is sooooooo slow.  But I am so thrilled about how good this quilt is looking.

I don't have a recipient in mind for this quilt yet.  I was thinking about donating it to The Pink Scrappers Relay for Life team to raffle off.  Would you buy a ticket if I did?
