Monkey Maddness

I started sewing the binding on the Sock Monkey quilt on Sunday.  Got it completely sewn onto the quilt top and realized my seam allowance was waaaaay too small.  I had moved my needle over when I was zig-zagging the binding edge, and hadn’t moved it back to center.  So now I get to do the lovely task of re-sewing the binding on the front.  I hope I can do so without ripping out any stitches – it’s the corners that I’m most concerned about.

I’ll keep you posted…


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
