I sometimes don't know what I would do without Project Linus. It gives me a great excuse to sew and create with very little guilt… And sometimes it is really nice to take something that has been started by someone else and finish it so it can be put to use. That’s exactly what happened with this little top.
One of the ladies at the Tuesday sewing group I attend had made this darling little top and had it all basted for quilting. She had started quilting it, but didn’t like the effect so was donating it to Lynda so someone else could finish it. I don’t think Lynda had it in her hands for more than 10 seconds when my mouth engaged and I said, “I’ll do it!”
That afternoon I put everything else to one side and meandered to my little heart’s content. 30 minutes later the quilting was done and by evening the binding was sewn down. The next day it got a quick wash and dry and it is lovely and snuggly just as a quilt should be ready to be returned to Lynda. A job well done :o)
I’m almost 1/2 through my Linus quilts (much to DH’s delight…I think he is feeling a little over-run with quilts…) and have been busy getting bindings on as I go along. I love these new Clover Clips for holding the binding on as you stitch…much better than pins that can poke you :o)
Until next time...♥
