Charity Quilt Binding

Standard

last week, I turned in the civil war charity quilt top I pieced last month and picked uo a quilted item to bind.  I am halfway done in one sitting this evening.

This is a child’s quilt and made with white and a red juvenile print. O don’t know who pieced it, but will ask.

I believe Teresa Ess quilted it.

Eat, Sleep, Quilt

Mr. QuiltAcademy and I have rented a cabin in the woods, and are spending time away from “having to…” I brought a few “want to…” things, and once we were settled in, I began putting on the binding on this quilt.  It is the Strippy Surprise Mystery Quilt by Jere’ Funk! The rain made it a “stay inside” kind of day.

After sewing halfway around, I noticed my Featherweight was skipping stitches.  Out came the manual.  It was threaded correctly, bobbin in right, hmmm.  I pulled the needle off and sure enough, it was flat side right.  I flipped it, and that was all it took.

Looking back, by the end of the day, I had taken two naps, and in between naps, I had finished hand sewing 3/4 way around.  My stitches are small, and the stripes on the back are a perfect comparison to their size.

Today is sunny and windy.  We will spend a little time on the porch watching the squirrels, and then I will bind the rest.

Binding on the Mexican Mardi Gras Lasagna Lap Quilt

Standard

This weekend, I spent time putting on the binding on my son-in-law’s quilt.

This evening I got quite a bit of hand sewing done while watching Bonnie Hunter’s webcam.

I have a box of red clamps that I clamp the binding down while sewing that I really like

As I sew I clip them to the front of my shirt.  Then once I fill up the neckline, I clamp down another section.

Best!
