The perfect patch and it's done!

 When I turned the fabric to make the binding on the edge, you could see the hole. This is the fabric patch to cover the other patch the the hole.

The finished patch
I think it looks great if I do say so myself.

I went on and finished the rest of the binding around the edge.
Now I just want to put a label on it and it will be ready to send.

Patch over the Patch

I didn't like the way the patch looked on the binding. I made a patch and sewed it on over the hole. Now I will just trim down the patch and sew it in the binding.

What Came From Stirring The Pot

Saturday we went on our annual apple trip. We were able to listen to Conference on the Jeep speakers. A swarm of bees hit the windshield right after a talk about bees. We were able to get golden delicious apples. They still had apple dumplings at our favorite little restaurant in Oak Glenn.

The apple this year were expensive and not as good. They were still green in color. The firmness and flavor said they were ready. I started last night and Jeff came straight home from work to help. He was on his way to get a new amp. The one on the sound system died. Jeffrey turns off those apples so well. It goes better and faster when he helps. He has such a talent.

I think bottled fruit is one of the most beautiful sights around!

Patched fussy cut

I used an iron on patch to cover the little V-shaped "fussy cut" I put on the edge of the quilt that will be the binding. I will use fray lock on the other side so it won't fray.
