I got the quilting finished and the binding on this baby quilt for our nephew's new addition this week. My husband and I spent the day in the car yesterday, a day trip to Weaverville, I managed to get all the handwork completed. Now with the binding whipped into place it is ready for mailing. Quiltkeemosabe gave me a tip a few years ago regarding binding... she hand bastes hers into place before the final step! Ever since she made this suggestion I have been basting my binding, it is such a pleasure to work on finishing a quilt that has no pins or clips to deal with, especially in the car!

|What's new? Superior's MonoPoly on a 10,000 yard cone. Joy!|
|What else is new? This book, at least it's new to me. More self-imposed homework!|
How old is this quilter/author anyway? Twelve?? The book and instructions are simply wonderful.
