On to the binding

Yesterday, Dear Older Daughter was home part of the day, so she held Ms. Hannah (I certainly didn't have to twist her arm) while I played with fabric. I got the binding for Dear MIL's placemats cut and sewn into one long strip. This morning I took about 20 minutes to press the binding, and now I'm ready to sew it on when the opportunity presents itself.

I've also been sneaking in a strip or two on my Off Centered Log Cabin blocks. I'm up to 56 of them.....and I ONLY need 168! I'll just keep plugging away. That's how the tortoise won the race!

Life is all about rolling with the punches, going with the flow and bending so you don't break, isn't it?? Maybe that's what this season of my life is for....to teach me to roll, go and bend! LOL

Happy Quilting!!

Woohoo! That sounds like 1/3 of the way there to me . . . you'll have a completed pile before you know it *sS*

Paging through my various quilting magazines I am always drawn to the Log Cabin. Seeing your beautiful blocks--well, I can't wait to see your finished quilt. Terrific work, Paula!

Your blocks are really piling up, won't be long and you'll get to start putting them together. I can't wait to see the finished quilt. Have a great day quilting!
