Sometimes the planets must be aligned just right, my star is shining, my guardian quilter is helping...whatever the case might be... (even tho the ipod is still missing..can they please help me with THIS detail NEXT TIME?!?)
I can't believe I went all the way around this quilt, sewing on the binding....and NOT ONCE....NOT ONCE I tell you....did a seam fall anywhere near a corner!
I think this is a kin to a golfer's HOLE IN ONE, don't you?
I mean, it never fails..I usually have to un-stitch a bit, re-piece a seam further up the side, to avoid having that seam fall in the corner miter. Sometimes I end up doing it TWICE in one quilt. (Which is more than anyone's fair share if you ask me.)
But something serendipitous happened this time...My muse was with me....no seams near ANY corner.
No hand stitching got done...I ended up doing more packing, and then started watching the "First Wives Club", a chick flick with Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler...too hilarious.
Last night I also quickly machine basted this little leader/ender framed 9 patch thingy for hand quilting. It's just the right size to take along with me. This one I pieced several months ago while having a sew day at Mary's house.
The border is in the process of being quilted on the "Love in the Barn Door" quilt, and I wanted to be sure I didn't run out of things to quilt on during the next week!
This morning, look who I found napping in the basket on the dining room table!
Well, he WAS napping, but now it looks like he is just GLARING..due to the fact that the little beep the camera makes when you turn it on woke him up. Sorry Oscar!
