been quilting along and finished quilting and all ready to complete your quilt with binding, to discover you haven't prepared "said" binding? UGH!
Well, I've done this not once, but many times. I get gleeful with excitment thinking I'm almost done and the dreadful act of cutting, sewing and pressing binding at that point just frustrates me. So, I declared this Backing & Binding Week.
I know ya'l are a lot like me and love to make tops and stop....so, I challenge you to go forth and get your backs and bindings all done this week for all those tops. Place tops, backing & binding in their own big ziploc bags until they are ready for quilting.
I have dugged through my stash and amazingly found fabric for the remaining backings and bindings I need to do. Even prepared some binding for a quilt that is at the longarm'ers right now. Two other quilts at the longarm's will have to wait til the come home for binding.
So far I have sewn 3 backs, created 6 bindings this week. I have 8 more bindings to prepare and one back - WHOO HOO! Everything is one more step to being completed.....eventually :D
So, off you go....see if you can beat me at making bindings this week.....
Backings Needed: 4 Backings Completed: 3
Bindings Needed: 14 Bindings Done: 6
Share your pictures by end of the week, comment here and I'll toss in something fun to give away.
