Here's my handy-dandy mending kit. No rocket science here - just an old peanut butter jar with a pincushion glued up top. But it's amazing how having everything all in one place makes a difference between "I'll mend a few things tonight" and "I'll get around to it someday."
The key, for me, is having just enough in there - not too much. I try not to let this become just another junk drawer.
Finally, here's the finished chorale quilt. I don't think the photo shows it that well, but the antique lace embellishments scattered throughout add a lot to the visual depth of the quilt.
I also think this is the first quilt I've ever made without a border. I've been seeing lots of borderless quilts lately, and they seem to have a more contemporary feel, so I thought I'd see how it worked. I liked it.
