Having spent such a late night with Elvis, I didn't do much yesterday. Rain kept me in the house, even though running was on my to-do list.
I definitely wanted to finish this quilt before heading South. It's my favorite, so I wanted to do it right. My finishing skills were suspect, so an hour of sitting at the computer watching a You-Tube session on binding was the first thing to get scratched off. About four hours later, with three new LARGE holes in my fingers on the sewing hand, not to mention six holes in the cuticle on the left hand from pushing the needle too far, I completed the binding ... and thus the quilt. THIS is a HIT!! I love this quilt!! In fact, when it was being quilted professionally, several ladies tried to buy it. Maybe I can make another ... so I checked the Alaskan website to find the material had been discontinued. They did have this exact quilt for sale however ... for $425.00. Holey moley!!! I just made a work of art ... better take out some insurance on this baby!!!
