Here I am about to stitch the binding onto my poor quilt that has been waiting so long for some attention! Some time ago, I was so very fortunate enough to do a bindings class with Narelle Grieve! You will see I have prepared the binding and started sewing leaving maybe a 8/10" tail.
Right around the quilt, I stitched, mitreing the corners. I stopped maybe 8/10" from the end, then I left a lap over - the amount is determined by the width of the binding.
Positioned and stitched across the 45 degree line!
Trimmed to 1/4" and the pressed flat! Give a gentle pull, lay onto the quilt and finish stitching over the remaining few inches.
I guess a lot of you know this method and this is a very brief show and tell, so hope it helps a few along the way - it is the neatest way I know to finish a binding!
While 'scrounging/caressing' fabrics in my stash this morning, I came across this little assortment above - hmmm, I'm about to redecorate a room for the Littlies - could make a very nice quilt!!!
My family is preparing Nachos for dinner (made by Angela) - yum, my favourite! - and then we are having a belated Birthday Cake (made by Ben) - this is one of the best Saturdays I have had for a long time!
Hope yours is a good one, too!
