Tiny men can be very curious, and sometimes they try something just to see what the result will be. Imagine my suprise when I found this little corner on Camo's Rocket Quilt. How could I be mad? I knew he wasn't being malicious, and he was sad that his quilt had an 'ouch'.
First step was to remove the offending area of binding - I had a tiny 5" x 2" piece of the green fabric in my scrap box, so I trimmed and joined. Next I satin-stitched the tear together. I wish I had a better matching thread, but it sure looks better than a hole. Re-applied the binding and hey presto, the quilt will live to survive many more launderings.
During the week I had to dash into a local fabric store. The two fabrics in the picture had to come home with me. The green fabric is for a project that will stay super secret for a while. It's going to be a surpise. And the purple I thought I'd audition with my green 'leader and ender' nine patches. I don't think it'll work, but it looks nice in my stash closet for now, and can wait for a perfect project.
