Binding Time

I am getting so close to finishing the binding on my Old Tobacco Road to Delhi quilt. Last evening I plunked down on the couch and continued to work on it while watching tv. As I stitched away I couldn't help but giggle about the backing fabric that I used. I only paid $3.00 a meter for it at Fabricland a couple years ago and I just love it - especially for this quilt. :)

I used to always have trouble with my thread getting all tangled and knotted as I was hand sewing binding but since I started using Thread Heaven it seems less of an aggravation. Smooth stitching is so much more relaxing and much quicker too! There are so many tools and accessories that are now available to quilters that can make things so much easier to do.

There is slightly less than 100" of binding to go and I think it just needs one more marathon evening of binding time and then it will be finished and ready to go on my bed. I can't wait!

You are so right about that!! I use a old bees wax candle if I use a thread that miss behaves. Usually if I pull the thread thru a bit more slowly I don't get any knots. Congrats on another finish!
