Default Okay - I Learned My Lesson

Putting on binding. Front sewn on. Hand sewing back. Two thirds of the way (on the long side) I saw that one block was not in the binding. Rolling eyes. Had to take the whole side out. Why? Anne does not like squaring up. In my mind, I am just making my quilt smaller. Well, I know better now. It's like being on a trip and turning around to drive 86 miles in the wrong direction.

(Holding up right hand) I promise to square up the edges before trying to put on bindings.

Sorry that happened to you, but we've all learned quilting lessons the hard way. And in my case, those are the lessons I remember.

A well deserved A+ for you.

It's nice to square up.

Well... hmmm.... I don't think I've made that particular "mistake" but doesn't mean I won't be.... Looking forward to seeing the finished project..... I really really appreciate bindings done that way.

I'm the "square-up" queen. I, too, learned this the hard way. We just get so excited when the end is near...lol!

I was squaring up my runner today and after much fiddling, I got it all marked off with my Frixion pen so I could keep the quilting far enough away from the binding. Well I thought it needed a final pressing before finishing the quilting.....I will be remarking it tomorrow.

Boston1954, my cousin whom I speak of often (she is the my long-armer), we incorporate the charity quilts together. She suggest that we serge the sandwich quilted piece and then sew on the binding front or back. That just makes easier to machine the binding down. But I have hand sewn the binding down with ease. Just thought that I would help you out a little.
