No One Told Me!
When I completed my first quilt a year ago, I was taught how to sew down the binding on the machine. Later, I made a large wall-hanging, and I once again did the binding on the machine. I wasn't happy with the results, however, so I vowed to do them by hand in the future. Somehow, that didn't sound like fun, so the quilts have been piling up. Not a large pile, mind you, because I work full time. And I like to travel and take pictures on the weekends. Some of you make more quilts in a month than I've made in a year. One of my Sept./Oct goals for CGQC was to finish all my bindings. I love doing it! I started on #4 tonight (of 4) and I feel so liberated that they're moving from the UFO pile to completed projects!
Forgive the boring pictures, but I'm EXCITED! And I'm easily amused.
