Utility Quilt #1 Done
Yesterday, Sarah asked me why we call them "Utility" Quilts. This is the term Nana used to describe her quilts, with the expectation of being used a lot. Just out of curiosity I Googled the term and found various descriptions ..... functional, simple, those with few frills and durable.
Next Monday, my sister Phyllis and I have a holiday from work. We will be sitting for our little Jolie (now 8 months old) and having a binding marathon. I will attempt the machine bindings and of course she will handle the hand bindings. Let's see if Jolie will want to help -- she is growing so fast and is everywhere. I don't think the other kids will be off that day, but I love to watch her interact with her cousins.
