Yesterday I got the email newsletter from the Buggy Barn and found out they are offering a new monthly program of pincushion kits designed by some pretty well-known quilt designers. What a great idea for those that collect pincushions! I'm definitely in!!
I finally FINISHED the binding of my nephew's baby quilt, at last! Boy do I hate the handwork! But I finished it and attached the label, so the quilt is ready to mail today. I am so happy to be done, and hope that they will like the quilt.
When I took this quilt to the local shop to show off the longarm quilting, everyone remarked how I basted down my binding. I asked "Doesn't everyone?" and they all voiced a resounding NO! One gal remarked that no wonder I hated bindings, because I was basically sewing it twice! So next time I will try my luck without the basting and see if I can manage to finish it any faster!
