Over 1/4!!!

I'm making real progress on my Red Monster binding - I've finished one entire long edge of the quilt, more than 1/4 done!  Woo hoo!  I think I can, I think I can!  My hands and fingers ache from the hand stitching, though.  I will get a little break tonight as I need to take my little ghouls out trick-or-treating and probably won't get a chance to work on the binding.  I'm pretty confident, though, that I will finish the binding in time to take the quilt with me to retreat on November 8.  Stay tuned!

Oh and I've discovered I really DON'T need to baste down the binding, that it stitches down just perfectly without that extra added step.  What a time-saver!  Who knew???


  1. You'll have it done without any problem. I have faith in you.
