Miles Of Binding

Anya has finished quilting the Very Berry Lemonade quilt and has passed it back to me, so I can put the binding on. What in the world made me volunteer for this job??? I normally make small quilts and wall hangings which don't take hardly any time at all to put the binding on. This one is full sized and all I can say is...Holy cow, it's a long way around this quilt!

I have done a few big ones too and your right, it seems like forever around the edge but I found it goes rather quickly.

lol....yea, not fun! Binding is my least favorite part to do.

But it is so pretty...you can do it because, it is for a good cause! Actually the binding is one of my favorite parts to do...ask Mickey, she will tell you, I always say "I love stitching the binding"...but now I have taught Mickey how and she does her own! As it should be passing on the stitching secrets! Have a great day!

You volunteered 'cos you're a lovely person. :-) Put a film on the TV and you'll hardly notice you're sewing.-well that worked when I was doing my Mum's lap quilt.
