Me: Maybe??? You would have to draw it up and find fabric.
Madi: Oh. Just black with white lettering and a black and white backing.
Me: Well, we would have to go find fabric.
Pause.......................10min later............................... Madi: Mom Wanna go to JoAnn's???
What do I get myself into? It didnt take long, but just as I was beginning the borders; my machine went on the fritz. I took it to Dr. Carl and by the end of the day it was finished and free. Their policy is: bring it back within the year and it will be free. Wonderful. It had a broken tooth in the bobbin case. He said I need to consider getting a more durable quilting machine. "I know", I said in a slow sad drawl of sheer udder disappointment knowing I will have to wait a long long time to have the machine I want.
Actually I tried two new techniques in binding this quilt. One was from a quilt store during the shop hop. It is a square that you lay down on your quilts corner and mark it with a pencil (a line diagonal with the corner), sew it and lay over your binding as you normally do. It sews up nicely when you do the binding by hand. The second was the sew the ends of the binding then sew it down and there is no telling were you stopped. Maybe I will have to take pictures the next time Im binding a quilt.
