Don't look under the table. That's where my "WIP's not UFO's" live. Look at the top of the table. I so need to keep the top clean. A clean work space motivates me to sew.
The place to begin was making binding. Last year was a bare minimum in sewing production for me. I have four quilts that are quilted and ready to be bound, but first binding had to be made.
With the beginnings of Fall in the air, I'd love to have Autumn Ridge (Black Mountain Quilts) completed to snuggle under. I normally choose the binding fabric early in a quilt project, but not this one. The only fabric in my stash that appealed to me was the left-overs from the backing fabric. I had several long pieces, but nothing with long pieces to make bias binding, so I made straight binding.
Binding strips were already cut for my Simply Indigo version of "Strawberry Pie"
But binding had to be sewn, ironed and attached to both quilts.
The entire PROCESS was soothing, relaxing and creative. Two of the four quilts now have the binding attached. The next step is hand sewing the binding to the backing. I love this step. I enjoy hand sewing. Football season has begun. Lots of college and professional games on television. I'm ready for football and sewing bindings!
