When I make a quilt my least favorite part is the cutting, so I try to cut out all of it at one time. Well, about 5 years ago I did just that. The top is complete, I hand quilted the star (it's my first attempt at a lone star quilt). I was not pleased with the way the center came together so I folded it and put it way. Well, since then we retired and moved from Missouri to North Carolina. After I unpacked my quilting supplies and put them away I decided it was time to finish the darn thing. Ok, so all I need to do is FMQ the borders and put on the binding, yay! I know I made the binding, I even remember (I think) seeing it when I unpacked my stash. Do you think I can find it now? Nooooooo. So now I have to find a coordinating fabric and CUT the binding and make another one. And you know as soon as I do that the original will magically appear.
