In my daily stroll around quilting blogs and websites I've notice that every quilter has a love for one particular part of quilting. Some like to design quilts but rarely make one, such as The Virtual Quilter. And then there's the quilter that loves to quilt the quilt but rarely gets time to make her own like Green Fairy Quilts. For me it's the binding. I love the binding process. Usually getting to that point is a long time coming for me, why? Because I really don't like the quilting process. I like the planning of the quilting design. But the actual standing there at the frame and quilting is like pulling eye teeth. Most of the time I can find any reason not to do the quilting. Designing a quilt runs a close second to the binding process. So what's your favorite part of the quilt making process? Do you have a certain loathing for any particular part?
This is how I left the big block beauty last night around midnight. She made me smile as I took my first sip of coffee this morning. Later in the day after picking green beans I'll finish the machine part of the binding. Hopefully I can get this binding done in a day. It's a big quilt (95 x 95) so the hand stitching is going to take a good part of a day.
I just had to share what was found when clearing off the cutting table to cut the binding. How cute are these!? I was given a couple of box of greeting cards. They were my grannies that she had saved all her life. No one wanted to buy them at the estate sale so I snagged them! All together we found 6 large boxes of cards, only 2 boxes survived the damp basement. And only a few in those boxes were worth keeping.
