Most often I really do not mind binding but for Winter Wonderland I put off putting it on for a couple days – but finally got it on yesterday and now begins the week of hand stitching to the back, I’m not a good enough machine sewer to try putting it all on by machine. I find hand stitching relaxing so really it doesn’t matter if it takes awhile does it.
I’m doing a multi-color left over strips from the blocks. Half way done on the first side!
I fold my quilt up while I work on binding I find it moves more smoothly for me and it doesn’t smother me to be under a heavy quilt when it is warm enough for the A/C to be on. I sit over a little way on the couch and just keep moving it down kind of folding it as I go. I have been told that I am too neat but I like to do my work in a neat sort of organized way. What can I say that is just me.
One section of neutrals done on Handful of Scraps only to find that when I started to add the row of neutrals all the way around that I need to watch my color choices – I wasn’t thinking.
What I mean is in three places I have like colors nesting against each other and I didn’t want that. So this section can be moved to another area it is not attached just pinned to the wall to see how it looked – in the next area where I add a row of neutral colors around the diamond I will lay it out on the table and check for color as I go so that won’t happen again. Some might not noticed it but it is early on enough in this quilt that I can make it how I want to without that happening. I am linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework today and Kathy’s Quilts, Slow Sunday Stitching.
All that mint I showed the other day – is put into this pint jar – I have more in the dehydrator still finishing up and if I crush what is in this jar down just a little bit I can fit it all in this jar.
Do you have Windows 10 and do you like it? Have you run into any problems with it. I have put off putting it on my computer as I really do not know much about it and wonder what you all use and say about it.
