All in the Details
I have 12 finished quilts, bound and washed. I love each and every one! Picking a favorite will be impossible - sadly you all will have to wait quite a while to see them – sorry. I’ve actually pieced 15 tops in the last two months – there were a couple of fabric choices that I made, and did not love. And so, I started over! I figure I must LOVE it for it to make the cut :) In that way the book is a living thing too. It’s constantly changing – hopefully for the good!
I have been double checking all my math this evening, and figured out the binding details –
I’ve tacked down 90 yards of binding – in a months time. two thirds of it was done in the last week! I have a rhythm :) And I love hand quilting thread for bindings, like gutterman or yli – good stuff that I paid $4 a spool for. It glides through the fabric and doesn’t knot up as much as regular thread. I just use 2, well maybe 3 neutral spools – and they will last forever!
I have 6 – 7 items on my to do list for my Thursday – but I’m excited! It’s coming together!! All those little details that I hope, make it a great book!
