Remember this square?  I must have posted about it a year or two ago.  I don’t have the time to go back and hunt for that post.  At the time, I was trying some hand quilting and maybe something else.  I forget.  I’m like Dora in Finding Nemo:  I saw something shiny and dropped what I was doing and went on to something else.   Anyway, at the recent AQS show in Grand Rapids, MI, I purchased a new binding tool.  I was anxious to try it, but had nothing ready for binding.  So I picked up this little piece, finished the quilting, and bound it with my new tool.  I think I’ll use it as a table mat.

ON ANOTHER NOTEThe Girl Who Quilts has an interesting tutorial for a new block.              

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
