Sewing Plans


Yesterday I made the bindings for the #scrappytripalong and the Flower Girl quilts and sewed them to the quilts. My nights this week will be spent watching TV and sewing the binding down by hand. I love this part of making a quilt.

Today, Mr. R is at a continuing education class, so I will be making more plus and X blocks. I think I need to make about 30 more to bring me to an even 100.


I hope you have {or had} a great Sunday!

They are going to be gorgeous finishes Di. I love sewing down the binding too - so relaxing to be away from the machine after what I always find to be stressful quilting. I am looking forward to the dual ta-dahs!

I love sewing the binding on by hand.

My post this morning was also about the same block, too funny. You can see mine here http://ksdesigngirls.blogspot.com/2013/01/cross-and-plus-blocks.html

I have been bitten by the x plus bug as well. Love the look of yours.

I might have my binding finished this evening, which makes me happy and a little bit sad at the same time!
Enjoy xxx

You and Hadley too! Seems the diet is still providing you with endless energy! ( I'm on my own for a week!)

I am not sure that I am crazy about sewing down the binding but I feel that the quilt looks so much better when you hand stitch rather than machine stitch.

Sewing down the binding is my favourite bit too. And your flower girl quilt is gorgeous.

Stitching binding on two quilts sounds like bliss. Hope it went well :)
