Lots and Lots of Binding!

Saturday I am long-arming the biggest quilt I’ve made to date – it’s an 80×90 beauty made of Glamping FQs.  The top turned out great – I can’t wait until it’s quilted!

Today I made the binding – lots and lots of it!  This is the biggest binding roll I’ve ever made!  I’m NOT looking forward to binding it, though!

I’m slightly impressed with myself – this is 2 posts in 2 weeks for me! Hopefully this is a sign that now that summer has come to a close I’ll be able to work on projects and keep on blogging about them for the next 2-3 seasons.  We shall see…

I’m linking up to Lee @ Freshly Pieced today.  Have a great week, everyone!

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

  3. Yes that is one big roll of binding! … I’m working on a binding blister too at the moment – ouch!

  4. HOLY MOLY! That’s a lot of binding! But for a quilt that size, I guess you’ll need every inch. Woah.

    What a nice role of binding! Mine only get rolled if they are going into a box until used for some future project (usually just left overs from other quilts). I just move a pile of binding around most of the time. 🙂 Hopefully it goes faster than you expect!

    It looks so pretty rolled up. Never thought of rolling it up. I have some fabric set aside to be binding for specific quilts made. A roll would help to make sue I don’t use it for something else.

I want to hear from you...
