I’m working on binding around here today. It’s funny but I always used to bind a quilt as soon as I’d quilted it, most times that very same day but now I seem to work better in batches. I had 4 waiting for binding and I got them all trimmed, the binding made and machine stitched on 2 of them, and they’re ready for hand stitching. When I finish those two, I’ll get the bindings made and sewn on the other two. I stitch them down in the evening after Keith has gone to bed, that part hasn’t changed.
All trimmed and ready for binding! Just one of these is mine, the other 3 are Sue’s tops that I’m finishing for donation.
They don’t sit and wait long for binding … usually no more than a week or so. I’ve got plenty of UFOs but I never could understand having UFOs that just needed binding. It’s funny how we get bogged down in different parts of the process. I just don’t quilt as fast as I piece and then when you add in Mom’s quilts and tops sent by other HeartStrings quilters, my bottleneck is always tops waiting for quilting.
