I have pretty much given up sewing the final side of a binding by hand. I am much more interested in finishing rather than spending hours hand stitching down the binding. I apply the binding to the wrong side of the quilt using my walking foot. Then I pull the binding around to the front and use matching thread in the bobbin and on the top. I try to stitch very close to the folded edge on the binding and usually have pretty good results. The back may not be perfect but these quilts are not going into judged shows. (You should be able to click on any picture and see a larger version of it.)
I use a lot of Wonder Clips when I do binding whether by hand or machine. They work very well.
And, less you think I don't do anything but quilt and think about quilting, Wednesday afternoon I replenished our supply of homemade meatballs. After cooking them (in the oven) we freeze them on cookie sheets and later throw in a Ziplock bag so we have a quick meal. Yum!
Yesterday's trip to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show was great fun. I'll share my small collection of purchases and a few pictures probably on Monday.
Today I'm linking up with Red Letter Quilts for the OMG Finish Party and Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
