Binding and serving

Tonight a neighbor came to my door saying "help! I borrowed a quilt frame to tie my two daughters' jeans quilts; they've finished the tops, but I don't know how to set up the frame with a quilt!" I said "I've tied quilts but they've already been set up when I get there, so I don't know, either!" We called another neighbor, and she met us back at the house, and we all worked together as she showed us how to set it up. It's a great feeling to help someone else with quilting techniques, and learning something yourself in the process! The neighbor who needed help also said she didn't know how to bind quilts, so I said that once the quilts were tied, I could help her with that, too!

I've come down with a sore throat this weekend, and haven't felt well today. Between taking a nap and taking it easy, it's been nice to have an excuse to sit down and do handwork for awhile. Though I don't like feeling sick, it really is fun to spread out a quilt on my lap and cuddle on the recliner or couch with my hubbie and kids, while I hand-finish the binding. My challenge quilt is almost done!

  1. Glad the 3 of you got it figured out. So sorry about the sore throat. Hopefully it didn't get worse.
