Every 4 years I work on quilt bindings. So far, I have done bindings on a Double Wedding Ring table runner, baby quilt and queen size quilt. I have 2 more queens to go.
I knew this wouldn’t be enough to keep me occupied while I watch the Olympics, so I dragged out this project.
I bought this old beat up lonestar quilt at a local antique shop. I have no idea how old it is…. 30’s or 40’s would be my guess. It is in sad shape. I cut off the outer edge and bound it, thinking I would use it on the table as a tablecloth.
I tried stitching a new diamond on…. and promptly took it off. I have since been using my bottle of Aleene’s Tacky Glue. I will stitch them down after I get them all glued on.
Yep, I know some of you are freaking about that glue thing. I don’t really much care. I can’t hold a needle like the rest of the world because of my MS, so I have learned to compensate with glue. Besides, I didn’t throw the thing away! I do like this quilt and it has been the perfect little project to work on in spurts during the glorious Olympic games.
Just one star point glued. 7 to go.
Speaking of the Olympics… isn’t Canada the greatest host? What a fabulous job they did on opening ceremonies. KD Lang absolutely outdid herself. And that poet? OMG! He was great. Canadians should be so proud of them.
The games have been a blast to watch. Sport at it’s best. Great competition, good judging and sportsmanship. Excitement at every turn and finish line.
You wont see me much during the games… my fingers might be glued together.
