Remember that song from the good old days, by the Carpenter’s, Rainy Days and Mondays. Well it’s Sunday and it’s raining but I have a big smile on my face. I am slow stitching down the binding on my flea market lap size quilt that I just finished hand quilting. It has fabrics from the eighties in it. The fabrics include some plaids with metallic threads, good old gingham, a bit of plaid flannel, and some small floral prints. I replaced a couple of blocks that were made out of that red velvet fabric little girls Christmas dresses used to be made out of in the eighties. I knew I would be washing this , and the thought of washing that red polyester velvet was a bit scary. When I discovered this little hand pieced top at the flea market it called out to me. The fabrics were like old friends that I hadn’t seen in a while. So what’s better than spending time with some old friends doing what you love to do. Stitching down the binding on a quilt is one of my favorite parts of assembling a quilt. It is like the home stretch of a race, and I have a feeling this one is going to be a winner.
