Binding

Don't you hate it when you have something (good?) to write about - that would make much more sense with photos - but you don't have any, and forgot to take them while you were working on what you wanted to write about???

I WAS going to write about binding, and I WAS going to say that the past few evenings I have been doing little more than sewing strips into binding and pressing them in half, and I WAS going to say that I now have the bindings prepared for 4 different quilts (and applied on one), even though 2 of the 4 quilts have yet to be sandwiched, and I WAS going to say that I have the strips cut for two other bindings but need to remember where I put them (the quilts AND the binding strips) , and I WAS going to ask how people "store" their binding before putting it on the quilt (I roll mine). I WAS...going to write about lots of things.

...well, I guess I just did.

:-)

(sorry about the lack of pics - I will take pictures of the bindings ON the quilts - I promise!)

I don't store binding as I only make for one quilt at a time. as soon as I've made it I sew it in place

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I USUALLY DON'T STORE THEM, BUT ONCE IN A WHILE I DO. I ROLL THEM IN A NICE LOSE ROLL. WELL THERE IS ALWAYS TOMORROW TO DO THE BINDING AND PICS OF THEM. HAPPY SEWING

Too funny!!!

I tend to sort of wind mine up and put them in a ziplock bag. If I quilt the top right away, the binding stays on my hope chest/staging area. If I store the quilt top, the binding goes with other bindings in my magazine basket for safe keeping.

And this has worked to far because I knew right where to find the fabric for the Santa quilt when it was quilted after 2 years of being a top! Woo hooo! :)
