I really had to search for fabrics that were in this quilt to use for the multicolor binding. I knew I used the end of two fabrics and I really hid the others when I put them away.
I started the quilting in the border that is spaced the same as the rest of the quilting.
I went shopping for 8' light bulbs in addition to other things yesterday. Today my electrician is coming to put a new ballast in the fixture at the bottom of my basement stairs. I put a new bulb in 3 months ago and it is already dying, $10 down the drain. I have to get the daylight bulbs and they are more expensive than run of the mill type fluorescent bulbs. I hope this fixes the problem. Most 8' bulbs last me at least 5 years and some are at least 10 years old. This year I had to replace 5.
