Wednesday: Still working on the wedding quilt as you might imagine. I got it quilted, and the binding is on and ready to be stitched down. I mulled over trying to do it by machine, but I never have, and I really don't want my first try to be on my best friend's wedding quilt, so it is time to whip my heart out. Whip stitch my heart out that is.
Friday-Sunday: Wedding time!
Phew, that was a lot in such a short period of time. Amanda loved her quilt and it made all the hard work worth it. If you missed my first post about it, I followed Alyssa's posts about her Black and White Memories Quilt in order to create this one. The wedding was SO FUN. I was very sad to say goodbye to all of my college friends. Alas, back to real life and back to sewing.
While I was binding like a crazy person, I wondered if machine binding would have been easier. I know a lot of people out there do machine binding....are there tricks and tips to know? Rachel, I know, has a good tutorial as I have read it several times. I just haven't taken the plunge. Any other good ones you have seen go by? I have enough semi finished quilts that I really need to learn successful machine binding or I will never see them all finished. That is way too much hand binding for sure. Time for cleaning and continued recovery from my weekend!
