i finished binding my batik pinwheel runner yesterday. the photo was taken vertical so ignore the background. i have one more of these pinwheel runners to quilt and bind, good olympic watching work. **** just back from maine quilts and i am so overwhelmed due to the many, many beautiful quilts. i did take some photos but have to sort them out and will certainly post. i took a half-day class in hand quilting to get some pointers from an expert and i wasn't disappointed. one thing that caused some dismay is the lack of crowds, not sure if i just missed them or if the turnout was indeed lower than in previous years. and i came away with only one-half yard of fabric for a planned project. with lancaster firmly in my mind, i am formulating my list for october instead. summer is 2/3rds over and no doubt the rest will fly by as well. last year we had good weather right thru november and we'll take that again this year too.
