I'm really liking binding!! (never thought you would hear me say that ... did you?)
I have struggled with binding since quilt one and have tried different methods, but ladies and gentlemen I'm telling you hands down... use this tutorial by Monika at My Sweet Prairie... as she has answered all my binding woes!
From creating the actual binding (on the bias... I never really paid that any attention before this), attaching the binding both top and bottom (with hand sewing!!!!), mitering my corners. I have a ton of firsts thanks to this tutorial!!
Here's the proof:
Just look at that corner!!! Flat, centered, no stress!
A quick look at the top and bottom of the binding. I still can use a lot of practice with my blind stitch which is used to hand sew on the bottom of the binding (really, it's a real stitch name... I used a youtube video to figure it out).
I've never been more proud of those easily overlooked edges.
And, I am still adding the final touches to Confetti. I think I should be ready for outdoor photos of it over the weekend.
Confetti has turned into one of those projects that just begs to be picked up, held and added to ad hock. I love that I'm not using a final plan or scheme. I'm just adding things where it seems to fit.
It fits the chaos of what confetti is.
It fills my need to let go.
It makes me smile!
