SWEATING BULLETS


Because of this:


and not being able to finish this:


But I found a little spool of white (not much) but I was able to finish.


I chose a blue for the backing because the little gal that is getting this quilt loves blue. I do not do my binding the way most quilters do...sorry....am I going to be handcuffed and taken away?

Over at Quilting in Oz she is doing the chicken dance but I am doing the happy dance because I was able to get another project out of the way....and my mother is sending me some more white thread...Gotta love the mommies out there!!! They take care of their babies...even when they are big and have babies of their own.

What fun..we are both dancing! Love the bright colors and I know the recipient will as well.

That was cutting it close! Glad you were able to scrounge up some white thread to finish.

How do you do your binding? It looks like you use the backing as part of the binding. I've tried making the backing larger and folding over to make the binding, but it never works just right. I always get frustrated. Probably just not cutting the backing the "right" size I guess...

I'm so glad that you were able to finish up with the small amount of thread that you had. It's a great looking quilt.

Best thing about making your own stuff is doing it the way you want; so bind any way you darn well please :0)
Glad you were able to finish! Whew!

Love the quilt and moms are good rescuers aren't they. Have a good weekend.

so? how do you do your binding different from anybody? I normally cut my binding strips 3 inches, fold in half, sew to back & flip to FRONT & sew down.....works for ME. And that's all that matters, right?

May I ask how you do binding? The quilt is lovely.

Pat said...

I think it looks very nice and I don't think it matters which way you bind your quilts. Remember...there are NO Quilt Police!!!

Oh Barb, anytime you need something just ask, I would be happy to do that for you! The quilt is wonderful, so bright and fun, and I do my binding differnt everytime!!

Sara said...

So cute - turned out really pretty.

I think I buy white thread everytime I go out...or at least you would think so if you looked at my thread supply!!!

Jean said...

Great work, getting that one finished...I hate when you are so close and need a bit more...thread...batting...whatever! Another one bites the dust!
As long as the binding gets put on, you are doing well. How do you do it differently, you have me curious?

Looks good Barb. I haven't had time to sandwich mine nor quilt it. Knew this was gonna be a problem wen I started.

That's what Moms are for! The quilt looks terrific! Do you mind my asking how you do your binding. I promise not to handcuff you and take you away!
