I opted to machine bind this quilt. While I prefer the look of a hand bound quilt, sometime you do what you gotta do. Have you ever used Wash Away Wonder Tape double sided adhesive tape? I love the stuff. I stuck my binding in place on the back side of the quilt, then snapped on my handy dandy Janome "S" foot and stitched in the ditch along the binding seam on the top side. It literally took less than five minutes to complete
Here's another WIP I'm working on -
I picked this up panel along with a bundle of coordinating fat quarters at the Robert Kaufman Sample Spree table at Spring 2010 Quilt Market. I added the midnight blue Carolina Chambray border and dotty cornerstones just to give it a little something extra. Sadly, Treadle Yard Goods, informed me that Robert Kaufman has essentially discontinued the vast majority of Carolina Chambray. Stock up if you see any because it's absolutely wonderful.
Now that the quilting is done I hope to get the binding on before the end of the day, children permitting.
Here's my last sneak peek. It's Sherbet Pips!
Please let my package full of backing and binding arrive today. I've been waiting ever so patiently.
