No doubt about it, mornings are my best times to get anything done. So, after some grocery shopping, I set out to get going on binding on Allietare, which is almost done!
I grabbed an old-mini-cone spool (if anyone has a way to recycle old plastic spools, please let me know, because I don't throw them away), seamed up an endless stretch of binding, and got that ready.
I am lazy about putting labels on my quilt, but Bonnie deserves so much credit for this design, that I am thinking about doing one and incorporating my Italian grandparents, and a photo on my last trip to Italy with mom and dad and one of my sons. This whole mystery quilt journey brought back memories of Italy, and gratitude for my heritage. It's all stitched into that quilt for me.
Binding sewn on, fabric and backing trimmed and ready for handstitching the binding to the back. Time to put my feet up for an hour before dinner. And coffee, always more coffee.
