Yep, I’m still in Paducah but just so you don’t forget about me, I left these posts that I hope will magically appear while I’m gone.
Sewing the binding to the quilt top is maybe my least favorite part of quilting. Adding the label might actually be my least favorite but .. don’t tell anyone but sometimes I don’t put labels. I have never “finished” a quilt without adding binding but I’ve “finished” quite a few without adding a label. I’ll try real hard to do better.
Here’s my basket of bindings waiting for the tops to be quilted.
If I make the binding when I finish the top and stick it aside, then I try to make myself add the binding as soon as I finish quilting the top. Otherwise, it could take forever to get the binding sewn on. Then, I still have to make myself do the handwork on the binding. I’ve tried to do it all by machine but I like it better finished by hand. And, that’s kinda like the “grand finale” and something that I just need to do to feel finished.
