Moving along -


At a snail's pace - but still moving along - ;))

The binding strips are all sewn end to end -


And the navy blue/white set is sewn together -


After dinner I'll finish the pink/white set -


Which will leave the green/gold set -

But before I sew that -

I think I'll measure my O Happy Christmas and cut more strips to make the binding for that one as well. The green and gold fabrics work for that, too -
and if I cut/make it now - it will be one less set that I will have to make later - ;))


Then I think I'll check the rest of the sandwiches in the "to be quilted" pile to see if I can find something suitable to use for binding. Might as well get the whole pile ready to go - I have to do it eventually and it will be one less "chore" to do after I do the FUN Free-Motion Quilting part.

When I get to the binding stage, I still have the corner triangles/hanging sleeve, the label, and the scrapbook page to do. That stuff takes as much if not more time than it takes to "quilt" it. I usually stall out when I get to making the backing - then again when I get to the binding.

Piecing the quilt top and Free-Motion Quilting tie for my favorite part - the other parts of making a quilt are more like "chores" that I have to do before I can "play" -

And the fewer "chores" I have to do -

The more time I have to PLAY - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Three sets of binding are cut -


Nothing exciting or fancy -


Some pink border fabric with some of the white/pink polka dot for the flange on my Pinwheel Polka Dot -


Some mottled green and solid gold for the Christmas Block Table Runner and Table Topper -


And some dark navy blue and solid white for Do You See What I See? - ;))


I'll probably bore you with the "in progress" photos over the next couple of days -

But posting about my progress keeps me accountable - LOL - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
