I discovered a great new trick this weekend for putting on bindings! I’m not the best at mangaging a queen size quilt and queen size binding. For some reason I am always getting tangled up with the two while trying to sew the binding on. On Pinterest, I saw bindings were wrapped around an empty spool of thread. Although I don’t have any cute wooden spools… I do have empty thread spools that would be perfect. It also occurred to me that I could use my cone thread holder to hold the spool of binding so that it would stay in place. It worked like a dream come true!
And to wrap up the weekend, I followed Sunni’s Hopscotch Quilt tute and had a great finish! I love, love, love this quilt! It will be included in a Boredom Buster Box for an auction this Thursday! Wish me luck!
I’m almost done with the big handprint quilt. I will be posting on that one next week!
