Shall we call this binding Saturday?
I finished another WiP quilt top. It's not quite ready to be quilted as I am waiting for the backing fabric to arrive from Fabric.com . I had trouble getting the quilt to look smooth however, I don't think the borders are wonky...everything measured correctly. I think it's my design wall with such a big quilt on it..the pins weren't quite doing the job. I have spent the rest of my sewing time on bindings. It wasn't fun...I sewed 8 bindings to quilts today. 8!!! Now I get to turn and hand stitch them to the back. Eventually they will all be done. It seems this year is going to be a good year for 'finishing' for me.

I think that is very pretty!! Going to be a lotta sewing, 8 bindings. Whew!
Well, I guess you accomplished a lot today, and with a sick little one too! Congrats!!! We need pics to see what quilts are going to be bound.
WOW that's alot of binding in one day. Your fingers are gonna be sore for sure.
I like your quilt on the design wall.
Love the quilt! You sound like me, lots of bindings on and have to flip and hand sew. But that means one thing... we are completing our projects!
Oh, this is really striking. It looks like Fig Tree fabrics to me, which I always love. 8 bindings, whew...that is a lot.
8 bindings is a LOT. Love the look of that quilt top.
You are cranking out stuff like Ican't believe!
Very pretty quilt. You will be so happy when all those binding are stitched down, crippled but happy. ;-)
Vickie, I know I sent you some directions, I will try to take a few photos for that handle. My friend made that same quilt and called it, "Double C's" because her last name started with a C, and the girl her son married..
her maiden name also started with a C...I thought your colors were great!
Wow. You were really busy!
Great quilt! I love the colours you've used.
8 bindings!! Wow- that's a lot. I guess you're going to do a lot of handstitching now then...
you are gonna be SO happy to have all 8 of those finished though.

EIGHT???? SLOW DOWN Woman, you'll hurt yourself!
Your stuff is always so pretty!!!!
Love the quilt! Wow...8 bindings...you're gonna have sore fingers when you hand stitch all those down!
