But the thinking part is the part that makes me put myself into a project I guess. I come from a long line of seamstresses/quilters. I know it's a God given talent. It's a yearning to make my life and my family's life something special. It's more than decorative, more than cute, more than pretty, more than useful. It's making something that no one else would make exactly the same way.
Because the top had been quilted there was a small difference in the size. I simply trimmed away the excess fabric of the back, then-------
I laid them in place and pinned them to both ends.
Cut 2 1/2 inch lengths of your choice of binding fabric. Enough to go all the way around plus extra. How much extra? Hummmmm. Honestly I just know that I cut at least an extra length. The way I put my binding together uses up extra fabric, but makes it look so much nicer!
I am now finished stitching the binding on, I have pressed it to the front and I will begin hand stitching the binding down on top. I use a slip stitch. Hiding your thread is the name of the game.
Go here if you need instruction.
Would love a comment or question!!!
