GOOD MORNING, BLOGGER FRIENDS !!

I know it’s been a while but I’ve been a sickie !!

Had a bladder infection, took lots of “ horse pills”

then I had some kind of “bug” and boy did I feel awful,

but hey !! can’t keep a good crafter down for long.

So I’m up and at’em  again !!

 

I did something I’ve tried time and again and failed,

 

but I did a baby quilted table topper, yep I sho’ nuff did !

                                                                                                         maurinequilt

whatcha think… for my first one ????

Well, I won’t be makin’ this one again for a while.

Binding wasn’t a “  piece o’cake” let me tell ya’

if any of you quilters know a secret to “ bindings”

please let me in on it.

 

Then I finished up my sweet little bunny and here she is

Hi Maurine...goodness you have had a good bout with that bladder infection - hope by now you are on the mend.
Gosh kiddo it has been ages since I've been here -
Can't wait to see what you got on your shopping trip.

Hugs,

Hi, I just found your blog today. Was looking at your table thing you quilted. Looks like you used store bought binding? I made a C'mas one like that last year and I had to make my own bias tape, turned out great. My suggestion to you would be to take that binding off and iron it in half like you would do for a quilt binding and see if that helps you. Will check back and see. Like your blog, so I'll read often. I'm new to quilting.......but I love the challenges it brings me.
