Saturday Morning Binding

Pinning the BindingMy friend Stacey came over this morning so I could help her with the binding of her first quilt. What a fun way to start the day!

We started off by pinning it to the quilt.  She chose a wide blue satin binding that matched the cute fabrics she picked.

It was fun to help as I usually sew my bindings using a different method.

Binding by MachineStacy got to test drive my machine while putting on the binding.

I told her if she really gets into quilting then she can save up for a nice Bernina and a drop in table with a big work surface.

This makes all the difference when doing lots of machine work, I think.

I am really proud of her finished quilt! She mixed fashion prints with some super soft minkee. Then she added pompoms to give it a touch of whimsy. Isn’t it so cute?
