When Things Don't Go To Plan

It's been a busy week here, so sewing time has been at a premium.  One of the goals this week was to finish the teddy quilt.  With that in mind, I got the fabric out at the beginning of the week to give time for some of the creases to drop out as it had been folded in the bag for some time.  I had everything ready for when I got the chance to sew.

That opportunity came yesterday morning.  The pieces were ironed and sandwiched and we were ready to go.  I quilted in the ditch around the squares inside the brown, then quilted 1/4" either side of the line of the on point teddy squares.

There was still a bit of time before lunch, so I thought I could get the binding on before lunch and sew in all the ends in the afternoon.  Trouble was, between the beginning of the week and Friday, the binding has gone walkabout.  I can't find it anywhere, and I've tried several times.

In the end, I've had to order some more fabric and hope it will mean the binding will jump out at me.  So far, it hasn't worked, so this little quilt will be waiting a little longer to get finished.

You've made good progress on this project! The old binding won't show up until the new binding is on the quilt! LOL

This pretty quilt will look lovely once the new binding is on (and, of course, the old binding appears!)
