Hand Stitching Binding


I think I am on a roll and I hope it keeps on rolling! Now that I am back in the saddle of quilting I now have a few quilts waiting for me to hand stitch bindings. I'm working on this quilt currently and I can tell you it is going a lot faster than the last quilt I stitched the binding on.

I don't remember when I quilted this one but it was fairly recently (comparatively) when my machine was still in the basement. At least I did take a photo of it while the quilting was in progress.

This rail fence beauty sat mostly folded up on the back of my couch for more than a year. I finished quilting it in March 2021 and I only just finished stitching the binding in the last couple weeks. I would work on it off and on and honestly it was mostly off!  It was a pattern that I saw in American Patchwork and Quilting magazine and it was a design by Kathie Holland. I really love this quilt and I love it even more because it is quilted using a Baptist Fan panto.

It has found a home with my youngest son.  He recently moved into a two bedroom house and it will be perfect for the second bedroom. I think he was happy to receive it. 😀
