Sunday Best

So happy to be able to say and show something on this last Sunday of August, which is so hard to believe that another month has gone by. You know it's 119 days till Christmas, WowWee.



My day is making, attaching and sewing down the binding on the 2 I Spy quilts.



I decided to just use the leftover trimmed pieces from the backs.
It will be a colorful binding don't you think.
I like to start with a 2 1/4 inch strip, I find 2 1/2 too wide and 2 inch usually not enough.



I had thought about putting it all on by machine but I like to do the last step by hand. Find it very soothing.

So my afternoon/evening is near perfect in someways. 
Hope yours is too.

  1. I agree... I use a 2.25" binding and enjoy stitching it by hand as the finishing touch!
    Enjoy!

  2. I find binding by hand something soothing also, nice to just be able to have it handy and stitch while watching the news or just 5 minute here and there.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
