My memory is getting so bad — I think these blocks were pieced by Betty and the top assembled by me in March at the HeartStrings sew in.
It’s quilted with freehand swirls and has a pieced binding. I don’t always take the time to assemble leftover binding bits into one long strip but the last two quilts I’ve bound have had pieced bindings and they’re a great way to finish off scrap quilts and use up those leftovers.
It was all about geneaolgy today. First at home this morning requesting copies of records I can’t find online and then volunteering at the library this afternoon/evening.
I also reviewed some letters that were passed along to me that gives my great-great grandfather’s first name. I’ll have to confirm that the information is correct but hopefully It will help me track him down.
Tomorrow it’s back to binding and quilting.
We always have a ton of coins sitting around the house and I hate paying fees to exchange them at a coin machine and I hate rolling them too so I was thrilled when I found that Coinstar allows you to get an Amazon gift card with no penalty. Yesterday I traded in $176.42 in coins — more books for me!
