Because I have so many tops that wait for quilting, I learned early on that I needed to set aside my binding when the top was completed rather than waiting until I was ready to bind the quilt if I wanted to use a fabric that was actually in the quilt. I don’t however make the binding … I just cut it, put it in a baggie which I sometimes actually label, and toss it in my binding bin.
In addition to pulling the binding for the Rail Fence Quilt, I pulled the ones for two other tops I plan to quilt while I’m here. The bindings will be done back in FL. I also pulled the Ladybug Drunkard’s path top … I’ve decided to hand quilt that one and just realized I need to pull that binding too … and I should look through my stash for a backing. I’ll stack up all the stuff going back to FL at the end of the week together so I don’t forget anything.
I love the feeling of living in a tree house that we get here. Views of the trees from every window.
