|Love the Bleeding Hearts. They bloom for weeks!|
It's raining again! The April showers will eventually bring out all my spring showers. My lilac bushes are so close to blooming. They are next to the front door so we will smell them every time we open the door.
It's been a busy week! First, I finished the binding on DS's batik Dresden plate on Tuesday afternoon before the guild meeting. That's one more UFO completely done and checked off my list!
I used washable Elmer's school glue along with my iron to hold the binding down on the back of the quilt while I used a decorative stitch from the front. It was so great not getting stuck by pins and I did it as one continuous seam. Here's a link to a Sharon Schamber YouTube videos about using school glue for binding.

So, I bought a Quilter's Dream Select Poly batt to try on yet another queen UFO that needs to get finished and out of my project boxes. I've heard that Quilter's Dream is like the Cadillac of battings. Have any of you used this?
I got the Storm at Sea kit in blue, green, and purple 9" blocks to finish at 22x30. It's not the miniature kit. I'm calling this a half yard in stash report.
