Thursday Morning

Instead of getting showered, dressed and out the door this morning, I decided to finish quilting Nabby's Dowry. I made mine a bit smaller than the instructions called for, using 1 1/2"  pieces instead of 2" so it finishes at 26" x 26". Perfect!  I traded out my old sewing machine for my Viking so I could use the walking foot and the auto foot lift to do the quilting. Nothing fancy, mostly stitch in the ditch.

Finally almost to the end of the binding, and I see this! I guess I should have measured instead of guessed. But what fun is that??? I posted this picture on Facebook and my funny friend Molly posted the picture below.

It is more fun to cut than measure and it is also fun to make fun of yourself once in a while.  I'm happy to have a finish. Now I must get that shower done and do what needs to be done today.  It's still morning so I'd better hurry, I've only got 55 minutes before morning is gone.

I love how it turned out. Mine will be about the same size as yours. I hate when that happens so I usually add extra length and hope for extra at the end. I also hate when the seam of the binding strips end up on the corner. It's nice to measure around for that too.

Beautiful little quilt! Maybe there is a "not-long-enough-binding" virus going around, because I had the same thing happen to me not long ago. Love the sign!

It's adorable - great colors, blocks, and the quilting shows it off well. Nice job!
