sweat shop

{happiness}

Oh look. My scrappy binding obsession is becoming addictive. This time I ended up with a touch over 38 yards. More than enough for the single girl quilt 4 times over.

Justine popped round last week for a day of sewing. She quilted a little lap quilt whilst I got carried away with my binding factory. I'm blaming her for keeping me chatting - why else would I make so much binding?

hard at work

Glad its not just me working in a sweat shop!!

Jo said...

I wish I had someone to distract me from making binding! I am currently deciding which fabric I can bear to stare at for long enough to make binding from it - it has very little to do with which one will match the quilt!

How lucky to share your sewing table :-)
Your binding looks gorge..is it the sewing or pressing part you love mostest - or both???

Lisa said...

WOW, I think I have binding envy! hahaha. I need to do that myself, have lots of scrap pieces in a pile, but that doesn't make itself!

What a great idea this is. I have already enlisted my sister to help me create binding! I must be so comforting to know that whatever quilt comes along, the binding is ready to go!
