Checked off today’s agenda – get up, take a long walk with Finn, make binding and machine stitch it on two quilts, run off to the Lobster Shack for lunch, sit on the rocks at Two Lights and read!
Back at the cottage, Finn and I went for another walk and now I’m ready to hand stitch the two bindings that I prepped this morning.
Whenever I’m in Maine tying quilts I always get comments from people who don’t like tied quilts. I get that, quilting looks neater than tying but have you ever cuddled up under a tied quilt?! They are very cozy and these are especially so because they have the Cuddle backing. We’re able to finish and donate more quilts during the sew-in when I tie these …. this is 3rd time we’ve spent the month of October in Maine and the timing is good coming right after the September sew-in as there are always lots of tops to be tied and finished so they can be donated.
Three more Happy Block quilts were finished yesterday.
