What's going on at our house?
Better week at school.
Routines help everyone feel comfortable.
Tanned for 30 minutes this morning, broken up into 18 + 12.
Way too hot even at 10:00 am.
Sewing like the wind (from Three Amigos)
to finish this before August is over:
 Big criss-cross squares.
I often thought that wasn't enough quilting
but the well-loved quilt I made my niece
before she was born has stood the test of time.
Bright, strong colors.
Looking for a yellow multi-color polka dot binding.
Off to spend the afternoon at mom and dad's.
They're canning grape jelly.
Happy weekend!

It's a terrific quilt and I like ones with space between the quilting. That's why I use Warm and White batting because it allows for plenty of space, about ten inches. And my arms can only do so much pushing and pulling. I hope you find the right binding.

What a fun design! I have some multi-dot-on-yellow fabric, but not enough for your binding.
Years ago a friend/colleague (with whom I've lost touch) was a tremendous Grace Livingston Hill fan . . . nice to see someone who still is!
