Week 6: binding (for full details, see here at I have to Say)
The fabric for the binding gets ironed, cut, folded, ironed, pinned on, sewn on with the machine, flipped, pinned and then hand sewn. It was almost as time consuming as the quilting portion.
Overall, I really enjoyed this project. It was more time intensive than any project I have done before. It certainly makes me appreciative of handmade items, quilts in general, and thankful for modern day mass produced items. I am so glad I had two helpful neighbors Abbey (who I can hopefully link to shortly) and Carole, to ask questions of and borrow items from as well as Randi's detailed instructions.
I'm already thinking about the next one. Thanks for hanging in there with me for this one. I promise not to give you so many details of the making of it.
Here are my other weeks:
