|Why, Why do I do this to myself......see my new computer sitting there. One new thing can set me off moving everything around, and that is no small feat. I have to many hobbies and to much paraphernalia that goes them.|
|As the computer came in, the what if I just thoughts came rushing in......such as what if I move the desk here and what if I move the book cases downstairs.......and on and on|

I might never sew my binding by hand again, thanks to Rita of Red Pepper Quilts. I have always admired her crisp, neat bindings and all by machine. I thought I would give her method a try ......... so I reread her Binding Tutorial and gave it a shot. It works like a dream. I didn't bother zig zaging the edges or pinning anything, like she does, but it worked anyway. I love it.

About the tutorial.....my new computer is in the city....sent to my wonderful, computer guy, instead of to me and he has, believe it or not, gone fishing. Sort of sounds like the dog ate my homework type of excuse...but it's the truth...honest. Seriously, it is on the top of my to do list.

and growing some more.
I might just finish this quilt before starting something else. I might actually practice project monogamy as suggested by Chawne. We'll see what happens....if I do it'll probably be a one time thing.
Also....I messed up with all my linking but this post is now linked to
For July 1st at Lily's Quilts

If you like to PLAN AS YOU GO..this might be the method for you. Two more borders added and quilted today. It's hard to believe I just started this quilt Tuesday Evening.
Just a little closer view.
Back of the quilt so far.

It's been a long time since I've made this type of QAYG quilt.....I'd forgotten how quickly it grows, as you just keep adding the QAYG borders. It's still on my to do list, to write up a tutorial on this QAYG method.....but so are all kinds of other things, that aren't getting done around here.

I start with a center and just keep adding QAYG type borders.
Here is a little better shot of my inspiration in the midst of my mess. I found an app to crop and fix photos on the ipad....all this playing around.....sooo addictive.
Lately I have been very good at creating mess and still more mess.
Hopefully the quality of these pictures aren't to bad...still working from the ipad. My computer is definitely fried and I haven't quite figured out how to edit and crop photos on here yet.
