Friday I started binding the quilt I am working on for my honey we call "The MAN quilt" :) By Sunday I was slow stitching the binding down...
I was so excited to use the new labels I found on Etsy! And the new Wonder Clips to hold my binding in place as I sew it down by hand:) I had hair clips I used gifted to me by my quilting mentor but lost them... she gave me a gift card so I bought these and they work GREAT for lots of stuff!!!
Look how good this corner turned out too!
You see I decided to stabilize all the fancy swirls by doing ITD (in the ditch) stitching on either side of all the feathers and cornerstones... So I am using 2 needles... one on either side... like this :)
I am using a John James #8 Quilting needle and Aurifil thread for this project... and my fave batting is Pellon Cotton you can find at JoAnns and I have seen it online too... but is is so nice to quilt and bind through! No peeking through to the front on my binding! lol
Have a blessed rest of your week and thanks for reading! Would love a comment on how you like to quilt straight lines :)
