By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Binding & Labels & Sleeves, Oh My!

Hello everyone. I've been away from blogging for what seems like months but it's only been a couple of weeks. What have I been doing, you ask??
Well, I've been doing my very least favorite things!
  1. Binding four quilts. I really don't like making and stitching binding. The quilts I worked on had been sitting, waiting for someone to finish them. But wait, I'm the someone. So I dug in and got that done, all by hand. I'll explain why in a minute.
  2. Labeling quilts. Not my favorite thing to do because I have to hand stitch them down.
  3. Sleeves! OMG!!!!! More hand stitching because I have a hair-brain idea of placing these quilts in my County Fair and possibly our State Fair in the summer. So of course, the quilts have to have things done by hand. 
I know I brought all this on myself and I am actually proud of myself for getting them down.

After all that was done, I was surfing my blogging friends and came upon a pretty quilt by 
Nancy at Wyoming Breezes. She named her quilt Diamond Facets and I was 
fascinated with her colors and the off center of the HST (half square triangles)
"Off Kilter" measures 46" by 53" and was done all from my enormous stash which continues to grow instead of diminish!!!
I don't know if or when I'll add a border but I love this little quilt.

Funny how we procrastinate doing the tasks we don't like...even in our hobby or art.

I have read that you can use a blind hem stitch to attach a sleeve - but I haven't tried it.
