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?
