Another drive, another binding. Knowing that we would be going back down to Madison this weekend, I buckled down on Friday to get A Walk in the Park quilted and the binding sewn on so I could hand stitch it in the car.
Since I was in a time crunch and I’m not sure what I’ll do with this one I just quilted an overall meander around the frames and some swirls in the centers.
Over the past nine years we’ve made the trip to Madison dozens of times. It’s usually around 2 hours door to door so that gives me a good chunk of uninterrupted time for binding. The drive is not that pretty so I’m not really missing any sightseeing. Typically we head back home late in the day and I drive. Last night we were tired from a long day but truly enjoyed the drive home. It was a magnificent sunset and the colors were beautiful. Of course when the pictures are taken from inside a moving car it just doesn’t do the panoramas justice.
This ended up being a very productive week. I finished three quilts so my totals are inching up. I bought a little bit of fabric this week, but only white and off-white backgrounds.
