I am warming up to the idea of hand-stitching the binding on. I loved the end result when I did it on my last quilt, and it seems to be going a lot faster this time around. Do I have better technique? Is the black color of the binding fabric hiding my lack of skill? Maybe a little of both, but it's going faster and looking really nice.
I do admit, the black color does help make it easier. It's also really framing the quilt nicely. My son keeps asking when it's going to be finished; apparently he has some big plans for this Dr. Seuss Quilt.
While working on the quilt, I needed a little bag to hold all of the clips, thimble, scissors, and thread. I decided to put one of my new dittie bags to work. It's really supposed to be for food, but this works, too. And it's quite handy. I might make some more of these in regular fabrics for this kind of thing.
I am so close to being done with this bad boy, so I'm going to get back to it. I am linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on. Love to hear from you; feel free to leave comments!
