Binding my Beyond the Cherry Trees
After saying I wasn't going to work on this quilt because it is SOoooo heavy and big and the weather has been SOoooo hot this summer (100 degrees), you would think I would have chosen a cooler day to work on it (it's only been 95 degrees today). Well, I guess when you get the urge to get into the quilt room and that quilt has been calling your name, you do what you have to do.
I decided to put the binding on my quilt.
So, now it is machine stitched on, trimmed and the binding clips are on (one side at least)
So, if I can stand the heat, I am going to start hand stitching this baby down.
I used Superior Threads Masterpiece thread that was in a box of neutrals by Alex Anderson. It worked great in the machine and now I am going to see how well it works with my hand stitching. I have never used this thread and picked up this set at the Grand Rapids AQS quilt show last weekend, so I am really interested on how well it works. I am sure many of you have used it, but I will give you my opinion once I am done.
Hope to get a sleeve on and a label on real soon and then I will be sending out applications for quilt shows. Keeping my fingers crossed that someone wants it for their show. We'll see.
