Whew, it's been a lot of sewing this week.....
but now that I have the Halloween costumes* out of the way (I'm giving myself a gold star** for being early for once!!) I'm ready to move on with my new quilt.

If you have a quilt where you don't want to interrupt the edges with a binding, try Melody's pillowcase binding tutorial. It's great!

* from left to right: fairy princess dress, cowgirl skirt, jedi tunic, belt, and cape.

**Kid story: Years ago when Ethan was about 3, we were backing out of the garage when he said "Mommy! Not buckled!"

I had forgotten to buckle him into his carseat. New mom's worst nightmare! I was so shocked, and so thankful and pleased that he told me, that I must have had quite an expression on my face as I exclaimed "Ethan! You get a GOLD STAR for telling Mommy!" And I placed an imaginary gold star on his forehead.

It made quite an impression, because to this day, as the kids are now 8, 6, and 3, they are still very pleased to get a *gold star* for good behavior. Although the oldest now occasionally makes the request for candy. (At least it's not money!) (Yet!)

Oh my, I love that quilt! Love the color mix and everything about it.

You get a gold star.

Your certainly keeping your hands full with three costumes and quilting! Never a dull day in your house I suspect! Thanks for your advice (again). I might just take the plunge and do it (again).
