• Binding Like a Bad Pair of Underwear

    Work Completed Wednesday

    I have also been playing at making a small quilts for Fourth of July, one as a table runner and one to hang on our apartment door. I knew what I wanted in my head but could not find it so I pulled out the graph paper and got to work

    I made 2 rail fence table runners (I bought more than enough fabric)

    IMG_6367I also got a walking foot and have started practicing Stitching in the Ditch to quilt up my own items. It was scary but it is not as hard as I thought.

    Next I learned all about Binding… (hence the title)

    I often think, “If I knew how much ironing and hand sewing was involved I am not sure I would really want to do this quilting thing.”

    I am so glad I have reading glasses other wise I would not be able to do all this hand sewing. . . when did that happen?!?!?

    For my Door, I  had 2 ideas

    IMG_6313Asking on social media majority votes came in for the option on the left so of course I wanted to make the one on the right.

    It took some quality time with my stitch ripper and some re-working but it all came together.

    I have to say I am so PROUD of this piece… I learned a lot and it looks good at the same time.

    Work in Progress Wednesday

    Last week at The City Quilter I found the perfect thread to quilt up this baby blanket. I really have to get my butt moving because the baby was early… (Mumma and Babe are healthy and fine) So this weekend I will pin it together and start Stitching in the Ditch.
