Musings from a scrap quilter and grandma about quilting and grandchildren, and whatever seems pertinent at the time.

First project is finished
This was the first project from Jo's Little Women Club 12 class I'm taking. I stitched down the binding today even though I really just wanted to knit!
Mitered the corners of that great striped fabric and then cut the binding on the bias so it would stripe that way. Not a big quilt, but fun to make. I started hand quilting it, but it's been so long since I hand quilted anything that I just couldn't get a consistent stitch, so I ripped it out and threw it on the longarm and practiced using the rulers to do diagonal lines through the blocks.
I did spend a couple of hours knitting on my next pair of socks, too. Now I'm going to head outside for a little fresh air -- kinda windy out, but in the 60's and dry for the first time in over a week.. We have another week worth of rain heading our way too.
