So, quilting was still on my list, and still mocking me.
I just did what I do most times I am trying something new. I chose something small so it would be quick, and mistakes would be inconsequential. Amilia is happy, and the [stuffed] puppies are warm in their box. I still don't quite get the proper way to bind the corners, but I am now less intimidated by them. I will do even better next time.
