Binding Nearly Completed
Group that I really like the newish clips I bought for this, among other purposes. Before, when I have been doing the binding on quilts, I tried to take great care in pinning to try to reduce the chance of scratching myself in the process. The clips eliminate that problem and hold the binding really well. I have also used these clips when sewing bags and purses together and there are several interfaced layers and piping and maybe batting needing to be sewn together.
The last major jobs to be done are the hanging sleeve and a combination pocket/label for the back that will give a bit of the quilt's history so far, and document the repairs made.
I have a question for all of you reading my post. I know that some friends and family read these blogs regularly. I am also aware of a whole batch of other people who read them from various parts of the world. It would be great to know who you are. Would you please leave me a comment? All you need to do is list where you live, why you came to my blog. You could make other comments if you like. No need to write more than a few words. Please feel free to use the option to comment anonymously if you like.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
