I have been working on finishing a log cabin quilt that I bought half finished from a friend of my mother's. the outer border was prety wide. so, I thought I'd just trim it up and use the trimmings for the binding. I ironed it and laid it on the arm of the couch beside the quilt and left to go to church Sunday morning. when I got home, my binding was gone. I have to explain that my DH and I are caregivers for his mother, who is best fast. And, he was home with her alone!! And, I also have to explain that my DH is a quilter of sorts who only uses 2&1/2 inch blocks in his quilts. Well, you guessed it. My DH had "found" my binding and cut it into 2 & 1/2 inch blocks!! What do you think about that? I wanted to scream!!! then I had to laugh!!
