Next year "binding a quilt" is going on my favorite thing to do list.
tonight Anne came over for me to teach her how to bind her first quilt (even though it looks totally amazing and not anything like a first quilt it totally is) I felt so guilty getting to do the best part of binding it. I kept saying, "your mom is missing out on the best part" as her mom helped her with all of the hard stuff like making it. I had forgotten how much I love to bind quilts. As I was teaching Anne how to thread the needle and start the knot I remember when my friend Mindy taught me and then told me that this is how her mom did it. I always think of that when I am sewing and can hear Mindy's voice. So I told Anne every time you start your thread you can think of me, who always thinks of Mindy, who always thinks of Trudy and how she knots her thread.
