Binding Machine

Since I got the binding done on my snowflake wall hanging, I got the binding cut and the front sewn on to my Seville quilt. I had juuuuuust enough of the green print to use it for the binding, which made me very glad.

Here's a close up of a little bit of the quilting, I think that the maroon is very fun and different.

Necessary action shot; gigantic pile of binding strips after they were all sewn together. (Also, I finally pressed my binding strip seams open, why have I never done this before??? It made things so much smoother.)

There is in fact another chair under that quilt holding it up because I have my sewing machine set up at the end of the kitchen table rather than along the side to save space. (Read: so I don't have to put it away when I have company.)

I'm hoping to start the hand binding on this one this week, but it might not get done until I get back from visiting Park Ranger Boyfriend this weekend. Hopefully, it won't get put in a pile for as long as the snowflake quilt was sitting on the chair in my living room.
