Countdown to quilt within reach

Georgie has been here a week today....and is FINISHING,
yes people, FINISHING the binding on her disappearing 9 patch!
Now, can you believe that...kinda makes me feel magical.

Bias binding was an absolute must to learn.
I  told her it was a quilt police rule...no buying of binding at the store in the little packages, nada, gotta do it from scratch.
"why do I have to make bias binding?"
"because you WANT to learn how!"

We had deep fried turkey and Banoffee pie yesterday...she has sent for her things and is now moving in, lol! She likes weird suthrun foods.

Like a duck to water I tell ya. Houston, we have a problem.


  1. I'm so glad you are having so much fun with your sister. THanks for sharing your family with us. What a wonderful way to spend time together--making a quilt. :)

  2. Elaine, Have been quietly keeping up with you while I been in a wedding frenzy!!! I am so thrilled to hear about how you and your sister are enjoying getting to know each other. It is such a special gift and blessing!! I am happy for you both.

  3. My sister has created a monster! I have cut all the fabric that I brought home.Now to start quilting !! I love this craft and thanks to my baby sister Elaine for bringing it out of me !!When she comes to Canada I will have to make a painter out of her !!...Georgie
