Kaleidoscope

The advantage of having teenage children is you can bind a quilt while they do the driving. Well at least that is one advantage. One I was thankful for on our last trip to visit my parents. It enabled me to finish this quilt. J did all the driving while I stitched away. Thank you J.


The sun is out this morning so I took hurried to take a few pics before that changes. With this weird spring I didn't want to take any chances. Sorry for the morning shadows but I was afraid if I waited it might be rainy, windy or worse yet it might snow again.



But for now this quilt is basking in the sunshine.



I'm sharing this over at Sarah's with her whoop whoop fun. Go check out what others are sharing.

  12. There is no way I would have tried to bind a quilt in the car with one of my teens. I would have been too busy helping them drive. :) blessings, marlene

  13. I don't think I could ride in a car and bind a quilt. I have to watch the road too. Good that you can relax and do that.

  19. Whoop! Whoop! Super lovely quilt! It will give your teenagers confidence if you can quilt while they drive and it might calm you. And on top of that you get the binding done. How great is all that!!
