Work In Progress Week 28 - Boring Binding


Word of the week here straight from Miss Grace "I'm 4 and a big kindy kid" is boring. Everything is boring, said in a whingy tone saying watch out when I'm 13! And so that describes exactly todays WIP! Boring old binding!

I have two projects on the go. Doing the binding of Elliott's pinwheel quilt, below. I have three sides done. And also the dissappearing 9 patch started last week. I have finished all the quilting on this, amazing how fast it all falls together when you don't do "fancy" quilting! Also I have overlocked the edges of the quilt once the binding is attatched, which so far seems to help the edges lay flat. Either that or I am being a bit more careful with my measurements. I ended up going for a yellow binding too on this one as didn't have anything suitable in the dark blue department.

Helen love the quilt. Charlotte's favourites at the moment "you never play with me" or "if you don't do it I'll scream"

Work on those 2 gorgeous quilts can't be boring- even if it is just binding!

Hang on in there - the binding will be done soon. Sometimes I stitch during the advert breaks on the TV - all those 5 minutes add up and you don't miss anything important!! Love the backing on the pinwheels quilt :)

Oooooh they are looking fabulous! I love the yellow binding, brings out the brighter colours against the blues. Jordan has just started with the "I'm bored", or "that's boring" following some of my suggestions - don't know how he could possible be with the amount of toys, games, and craft materials he has!

Luckily my 2 year old hasn't gotten to the "boring" stage. Though if she is bored, she lets us know -- loudly, and quickly. eeek! The quilts are lovely -- the binding may be boring, but they are both turning out to be stunning.

Yup, binding is boring, but hey!

I love the backing fabric you've used on Elliott's quilt. The pinwheels are cool - am toying of playing with some soon!
