I finished the quilting on this quilt at the end of January and since then it has been hanging around waiting for me to trim it and make the binding. My sewing room is really quite full and whenever I want to work on something I have to move a million things around to make space. I got a little tired of moving this quilt from space to space and decided it was time to trim it and get the binding made and attached.
I have started the process of hand stitching it to the back and I am really looking forward to seeing how it will all look when it is finished. I plan on working on it some time today and I plan to finish it over the next couple days. I have read on different blogs about how you hold your quilt when sewing the binding to the back. I always have the quilt sitting in my lap with the binding folded over and down - it just looks and feels a little awkward to do it any other way. Do you have a preference?
