Angela (SoScrappy) has dagone saved my life!!! Seriously----PRIOR to her tutorial, my binding corners looked like that hacked-up-need-to-fix-with-additional-binding that you see pictured on the right. But NOW-------v'iola! Her tutorial made my corners a BREEEEEZE! (see red corner on left). I have yet to sew the binding to the back, but.......THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
In fact, I was SOOOOOO excited at how easy the binding was, that I needed to come up with another project FAST so I could practice again! So, naturally when a lady has an ENTIRE DAY OFF, and a handful of C'mas deadline quilts on her hands, she would work towards finishing one of them. But...........sometimes I wonder if I'm a bit beyond crazy!!!
So, what does one "beyond crazy lady" decide to do?????
8:30 am: Pull out some scraps (left over from the new C'mas stockings this year that my mother made)
8:45 am: Cut into 4.5" charms
10:00 am: Piece together
12:30 pm: Throw on some borders
12:50 pm: Sandwich and baste (using a blanket that was a $.10 garage sale find from this summer)
1:25 pm: Quilt with simple lines, using a decorative stitch
2:15 pm: Practice Angela's binding method again
2:30 pm: And v'iola! Finished (well, almost) QUILT IN A DAY!
What great, silly fabrics some of them were! I'm dying to know whose stocking the C'mas animals belong to!!! How funny!!!!!!
Okay, I know this was a short post, but I really need to fly the coop! I'm off to my parent's house, with hand-sewing projects in tow, but first I have to run to the bank and then pick up the girls from Daycare.
THANK YOU ONE LAST TIME ANGELA!!!!
