When I finally got around to binding Brown Planet, I had to cut off a few inches on each side to square it up. I was crushed to think that all that intense quilting would have be lost. But I looked at it and realized that I had enough to piece those strips into a small quilt. Fortunately I had just enough for a twelve inch square quilt and I decided that this would be a good choice for my entry this year. The auction doesn't start until September, but they are due in June.
