(Flowers from Mom's garden for your viewing pleasure.)I didn't sew a stitch yesterday. I ran around a bit; picked up the surgical seam ripper from Patchwork Cottage. I am not sure what we will use it for, but I am ready for whatever it is. At the Quilt Symposium of Alabama I am taking classes called "Thick and Thin" (handstitching), "Framed Double Wedding Ring" and "Mariner's Compass." Good gracious I have had the most trouble trying to figure out what fabric to pack for these classes. Yesterday I washed, spray starched and ironed the fabric for the Compass class. I don't normally wash fabric first. I wish I had though when I decided to hand quilt the coffee filter fan piece. I think it would be easier to stitch through. Back in the late 70s we washed all the fabric because we hand pieced and hand quilted.
So, or sew, today I applied the binding that waited overnight by my sewing computer (not a machine, mind you, according to Bernina).
Photo of finished Samurai Squares to follow. Soon.
