Thank you. I am pretty pleased with this quilt. I have finished the first of 5 rows of circles so off to a good start.

part of my problem is sewing black bindings.  no matter how bright the light it still feels like a guessing game.

AND especially when sewing at night.  OMG .. talk about a visual black hole!

I just had a brain storm - I don't usually like using these things but DH loves them.  Bet it would help at least on those corners

I'm finally feeling like I'm on the mend from Covid.  Thankfully, neither Rick nor I had any of the serious symptoms, like shortness of breath, and we both are feeling better now.  Thank you for your nice wishes and prayers. 

Thank you for all of you encouraging comments about my bride quilt too.  I hope to get caught up on things around here and then start on the borders while I'm still excited about finishing it.

I loved seeing all of the pretty quilts so many of you posted about while I was sick.  Seeing them while I was under the weather cheered my day, so thank you!!!

I tend not to like wearing those head lamps either but *dang* they sure do direct bright light to EXACTLY where you are looking!

I've done my binding that way forever.  Stitch to the ac and flip to the front, although I do pin. My fingers would cramp up when I tried to fold over and hold in place.  I only hand sew my binding if it is a special gift quilt and I haven't done one of those a long time.  By the time I get to the binding,,  just want to get 'er done".

Thank you. I love the colors too and spent a few months finding fabrics at multiple shops. I created a Pinterest board for me and the bride to be and asked her to pin quilts she liked. She pinned lot of DWR and Storm at sea most in that color way so I was sure of what she would like.

Count on  you to make sure that your "labor of love" will be the correct one for this couple.
