...............it goes on and on.
How do you DO it!!! I can hardly keep up with my sewing/quilting
projects. PLUS regularly cooking and cleaning for my family!! It blows
my mind with all the amazing quilters that get SO much accomplished!! Do you add more hours to your day?
It's a love/hate relationship. I love cutting fabric, putting it together, quilting it. But when it comes to the final phase - sewing down the binding - my love turns to fatigued dislike.
I finished quilting this quilt (don't you love the backing?) and all that was left was sewing down the binding. I sometimes try to use the backing fabric, pulling it over the sides and machine stitching. But this backing was different than the quilt fabric, I just couldn't do it.
Sitting in front of the TV, I stitched night after night. It felt like forever. I'm just not a fan of hand stitching of any kind. But finally it was done.
I loved the fabric in this quilt so much that I scavenged the left over fabric and worked on a table runner.
This one I was able to use the backing to make the binding :-)
