Our family went on a little road trip south, in search of warmer weather. I'm happy to say that we were successful. :) I found a gem of a quilt at an antique store in Missouri. It's quite the souvenir!
I debated whether to buy it on not, because I certainly do not need another quilt...ahem....but the price was too good to pass up, especially for the condition it is in.
I can imagine that trying to apply binding to all those curves will be challenging. (Yikes!)
I'm so glad that I stumbled across this quilt. I have no buyer's remorse whatsoever. :)
Before we left on the trip, I attached the binding on my happy quilt, so it is now completely finished. (More pictures to come.) It was great to have a quilt to bind on the road!
Since I finished a quilt, I spent the past few nights cutting out a new project. It felt good to start something new, finally! Our guild (the Minneapolis MQG) is doing a crayon challenge, which I'm excited about! I have to say, I feel fortunate to have randomly picked such a cohesive group of colors. Cerise is dangerously close to purple, but I think I can handle it. (hahaha!) I managed to find enough of it in my stash and scrap bins for my project, which is a very good thing!
On the way home, I had the opportunity to meet up with my long-time blog friend, Suzanne. She has been such a good friend and a constant source of encouragement to me over the past several years. It was an absolute delight to finally meet her in real life and have a visit over a cup of tea. It was the best.
I hope your week is off to a great start! Thanks for reading. xo
