I finished another quilt. (I KNOW you are SO surprised!) My rainbow 'Trip Around the World'. This is an exchange I did with friends in Lynchburg, VA (1996?). We exchanged very short tubes of squares in the order I'd written down for them. I love the way it turned out. I AM unhappy with the back I chose, green plaid homespun; I don't like the feel or the look of it.
I experimented with the binding. I'd seen Sharon Schamber free video of how she does binding and although the video put me to sleep I decided to use her method for attaching the binding before sewing the back. If you have a big quilt find a way to sit to do the ironing but since this was small I just stood. I really thought I'd never do it again but it is so relaxing to do the hand stitching on the back of the binding now with no pins and no holding and no tension that I'll do it again.

Out; 8 yards
totals for the year
in;18 yards (I rounded this up a tiny bit to loose the fraction)
out; 83.91 How long will it take to get to 100 yards?
