Coming soon…

I finished quilting the borders this afternoon.

I was all excited to get the binding on and finish but had to slow down to actually make the binding.  Here it is, in a tidy roll now ready to go.

Making binding isn’t my favourite part of making a quilt.  I really should start making my bindings right at the beginning, before the piecing, so I wouldn’t have to interrupt the fun stuff near the end.   Then again that would mean slowing down the momentum at the beginning…

Hopefully there will be a picture of a completed baby quilt in the next couple of days, assuming groceries and laundry don’t hog too much time.  The cupboards are bare though…and the sock and underwear supply is dangerously low…

  1. I hate to stop for any reason when I am on a roll. This baby quilt is looking very cute. Hope to see the finished quilt soon -- after laundry and groceries, of course!

  2. I actually love doing the binding! I always cut and prepare the binding when I'm cutting the quilt blocks. Right now I have four bindings accordion pleated and tied around with selvage edging, all ready to be applied if I ever get the tops quilted! (Did I say FOUR bindings? Yes, that's right! Something has to be done about that, and soon!) At least you are getting the quilting done! I'll use your excuse; life does get in the way sometimes! *grin* ---"Love"

  4. Oh such a tease! I can't wait to see. (And I'm using that green in a project right now, too!)

  5. I can't wait to see it finished! Like Love I love the binding phase of quilts, but maybe because I have a tendancy to rarely get that far it becomes a rare treat. :) Good luck and can't wait to see the finished project.
