Those of you who don’t think I’m crazy already will now. I love binding my quilts. It’s my second favorite part. Quilting being the first. I always make a 2 1/4 inch binding unless I’m binding something small like a potholder, mug rug or table topper, then I use a 1 1/4inch binding. This is the binding for the quilt I spent sooo much time frogging last week. I always put my binding on and empty tube like this one. It’s so much easier when I’m sewing it on, it doesn’t get tangled or caught on all of those things that really shouldn’t be on my table anyway. ( How does that happen?) In spite of the problems with this quilt, it has grown on me. Indecision on my part was the reason for the stitching problems, but I’m satisfied with the quilting now.
Look what I got in the mail. I won a giveaway over on Em’s blog. Do you know Em? If you don’t, you should! She’s the Best!
