We took a day trip to Paducah that included a stop at Hancocks of Paducah. I picked up some 5″ charm packs on sale and two pieces of fabric not on sale 😉 The fabric on the right is for a workshop with Toby Lischko in conjuntion with the Quintessential Quilt 2007 show held in October. The fabric on the left is for my stash 🙂 It wasn’t as exciting as going to Hancocks when the AQS quilt show is going on but fun non the less.
I’m writing this mainly to get myself motivated to machine sew the binding on my Brooch quilt so it can be entered into the Quintessential Quilt 2007 show. The show details are on the Circle in the Square Quilters guild website, www.circleinthesquare.org and clicking on the link on the lefthand side. While I enjoy hand stitching the binding to the back I don’t enjoy machine stitching it on the front. Always seems like such a wrestling match! And, if you look at my project list you’ll see I have several waiting for their binding. Now if these quilts were gifts, they’d be done asap but if it can be put off, then cutting and piecing is more fun!!
