I had won a jelly roll and found a cute pattern for it and had sewn some of the strips together. Then everything was folded all nice and neat and put back into the bag with the book and fabric for borders, binding and the back. I wish I knew why I didn't finish this. I love these fabrics and it's going to be such a soft quilt.
(sorry for the bright picture-that's what happens when there is a light bulb explosion)
When I did emerge from the sewing room, I decided to work on the Boxy Stars binding. In the past, I used sharp pins to pin my binding down and being the klutz that I am, was constantly sticking myself. I told Ernie next time I go into town, I'm buying myself some fancy new clips to hold down my binding instead of using pins. I had watched my friend use them a couple weeks ago and thought they were pretty clever.
Then a light bulb exploded in my head! I have a box full of binder clips! Duh!!! These work great and made me feel pretty good about using what I have. I only wish I would have had this light bulb explosion the night before as I was stitching on the other quilt. See you can teach an old dog...........
