I've had this mini quilt done for months...but I hate making binding. I love hand sewing binding down...but making binding? Barf. I had 7 minis last night that I sucked it up & made binding for, I think I get a bonus point or something. This was the first one I bound...it'll take me the rest of the summer to bind the rest...haha.

Also, I tried out Thread Heaven last night....wowzers...that is one FANTASTIC product. I always use too much thread and it gets knotted and tangled...not so with this stuff! It was great!

    I love this! Love the fussy cutting!

    The fussy-cutting is just wonderful! I hate making the binding too, but hand-sewing it is my favourite part of quilting. Did you know the Simplicity bias-maker can make double-fold binding in 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 " widths? You buy a specific head, press a button and off it goes!

    I, too, love Carol Doak's 50 fab stars. And I love your quilting, fussy cutting, and corners.

    I LOVE this project soooo much! Just saw it for the first time right now....where have I been? Reminds me of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which I also just saw and want to watch again. I can't believe it didn't win a ribbon in your fair, but have seen other mysteries in judging, too. Don't take it too hard!
