Apparently I’m a thief. My hubby told me I keep stealing the covers. I started this quilt ages ago (You’ve probably seen it a time or two.) I’m hoping it will help with my thieving problem so my dear hubby does not freeze. Our current quilt barley covers the bed. This one has plenty of overhang, so even if what my hubby says is true, I’d have to steal quite a bit before he runs out of quilt and the frosty air hits him. I’ve taken the last week or so to quilt it on my dear friend Marilyn’s Handi Quilter. Thank you, thank you Marilyn I don’t think I could have wrestled this on my Bernina and been happy with the results. You can see the quilting better here.
So now it’s time to bind. Binding is one of my favorite parts of quilting. I love the quiet relaxing aspect of it. And lucky me while I was down visiting my parents last week I found these at a garage sale. Some of them have never been open. They will be great to watch while I bind my quilt.
I’m a bit of a musical junkie. I love the old musicals. Growing up in a house full of girls we enjoyed many hours enjoying these classics. My dad said they should be required viewing for all young men so they know what a girl expects and can act accordingly. Don’t you all agree? My boys think he’s crazy but they have seen them all. Someday they may thank me when they win that special girl’s heart.
