Last weekend I celebrated my 60th birthday with a party. My grandson was coming so I finally got the binding on his quilt. After I opened my presents I gave him one, along with matching pillowcases. He was thrilled. Now I need to make something for his brother, and I have a plan.
I got very lucky finding the same fabric I used for the border of the quilt to use as the border for the pillowcases. I only had enough for one, but found the same batik when I was visiting the Sisters quilt show, actually at a store in Bend, but how lucky! I did bring along the bit I had so I could match it. That trip was also when I stitched down the binding.
