I'd intended to finish up the last 16 string blocks I need for my current project but woke up feeling like I needed to focus on the quilts needing bindings. So I sorted, and trimmed, cut and made binding, and machine stitched it on a couple quilts and now things are under control.
Of the 9 quilts here:
- 2 were set aside to be sent to Maine for binding and donating
- 3 were trimmed, binding was cut, and they're set aside for me to take to the sew-in tomorrow. Sheree has come to my rescue again and will bind these 3 for me.
- 2 got bindings made and machine stitched - these are ready for me to hand stitch now.
- That just leaves 2 in the stack that needs attention -- much better than 9.
I know some people get confused when I mention machine stitching binding but just to be clear, I machine stitch all my bindings to the front of the quilt and then fold it to the back and finish it with hand stitching.
Now, I'm working on getting my stuff together for tomorrow's HeartStrings sew-in.
