Here is what they look like when they are basted together and then basted to muslin to fit my hoop.
I prefer to use my Hera marker to mark my quilting lines, but if the fabric is too busy, I have use the white Sewline marker.
So, what is the funny story you ask? Well, I finished quilting these two on Saturday morning and went to attach the binding, but the strips were NOwhere to be found.
I did a cursory look through the giveaway "scrid" pile (yes, they are still sitting on my cutting table) but didn't see them so I frantically searched the sewing room before going through every room of the house (yes, even the kitchen where I am rarely seen on the weekend!). After what seemed like and hour, I gave up the search and went to the stash to find something suitable (but not perfect) to use.
When I got up on Sunday, I forced myself to give the giveaway "scrid" pile one more look before I put the replacement bindings on, and lo and behold, what did I find????
So, whoever wins the scraps will be two pieces shy! What a hoot! Good thing I can laugh about it now!!!!
