I spend my morning's making baby shower invitations but my afternoons have been all about trying to clear out the quilting corner.
I'm putting that red binding on Daddio's Thangle quilt. I normally love this part of the process but using a solid fabric is fiddly. You can't just eyeball it. It needs to be even-or as even as I can get it which is not actually very even.
My latest Dear Jane got completed but it was not easy. Yesterday I ran a needle through my thumbnail which broke it off down in the ouchy place. The nail broke off in that area and the bare part hurts like heck. You never realize how important your fingernails are until you lose one.
Thankfully it was a very easy block. It needs to spend the night now under a weighted book to flatten it out. Then it will join the others. One down and twelve more to go in Row C. The next one is a real doozy. Dear Jane was apparently a glutton for punishment-or had a wicked sense of humor.
Sorry about the thumbnail drama-ouch! The block turned out great; the binding will look fine when you finish it! Nice work all around!ReplyDelete
I've started pressing the binding to help keep it even, and it seems to work better than eyeballing it.ReplyDelete

Oh my gracious! I hope your poor finger soon heals! But your quilts are coming along beautifully!ReplyDelete
I think that red looks great with the quilt. The block turned out very nice too. I flinched visibly when I read that you had put a needle through your nail. Ouch! I hope it’s feeling better today. Blessings, BetsyReplyDelete
