Checking the Fit …


Checking the Fit of Dad's Quilt top

… of Dad’s Samurai-ish quilt, and I think it’s just fine without borders added.  Yay!  I’ve changed my mind about backing fabrics, so I’ll have to order something else and then get this baby to the quilt shop.

I’ve slowed down a little too much on my hand sewing of binding.  There’s another quilt that only needs a little bit of work to finish, but every time I try to sit with it on the couch,  kittens crawl all over me.  It sounds really odd to be complaining about kitten affection, but it does make it hard to sew.  I think I might have to switch to binding completely by machine or it’ll be forever before Dad gets to use his quilt.

  1. This is going to be beautiful. I love to hand sew my bindings in the evenings while watching a movie with my hubby. I find it very relaxing. If you lived closer, I’d be happy to help you out. 😃 Connie

    • :D! Thanks, Connie! That would work out perfectly, wouldn’t it? I’m worried that as it gets warmer, I’ll be even less inclined to sit under a quilt and work on the binding. I think I’ll have to try it by machine or I’ll get nowhere!

      • When it gets warm out, I lay the quilt over a TV or crafting table. That say it is not actually laying on you. Hope that helps a bit. 😉
