Jackie brought her antique flower garden to show us. She purchased the top old top several years ago. Jackie does handquilting with a church group. The top was perfect except that the edges were all ravelly ( is that a word?) A friend finished the edges for her by facing them instead of binding. I think it looks nicer than just cutting them off straight and might even be a good choice if your edges aren't raveled - binding all those tiny hexagons can be intimidating.
The PSQ staff is "retreating" this weekend in our own retreat center. We all bring plenty of projects and snacks. Meals are at our local restaurants.
