Ready to Bind
Today I made the binding for this quilt. I think the dark binding kind of frames the whole thing. Now I have to square the quilt, sew the binding on and then do the miles of hand quilting. I am just wondering whether I should stitch it down on the back with black or white thread. I know there is a correct way and I think it is using the color of the background but I'm not sure.
Yesterday we spent July 1, Canada Day, at a family gathering as we usually do. It was a potluck so of course there was a ton of great food. The kids had a big water fight and got drenched. The only rule was no water on the adults. Some of the older teens got sucked into the fight whether they liked it or not. Us oldies stayed dry. I think everyone had a great time.
