    Hi everyone. Browsing pictures inspired me to finish one of my first wall hangings you see posted here. I've had it about 4 years now lol! Now and then I'd putter on it. Being self taught with multiple learning quirks I could fill a book with stories. My biggest issue? I think from this picture it might be obvious binding consistantly puts me in a bind...Note all of the books in the background I'm forever seeking a book to learn different things how I wish I had known about this forum. Anyway Happy Autumn everyone! bryanne

    Very cute. I really like him and you did a really nice job! I topstitch my binding with a thread that blends in so it shows less of my mistakes. I don't think I have ever admitted that before. It's okay because Sadiemae is my board name, not my real name. LOL

    He's cute. I could see him on the classroom door for maybe first grade. Every kid would speak to Mr. Pumpkin Head as he entered.

    Of course, he would look good on my front door, as well. And, I don't even have any kids.

    That is the Cutest Thing Ever! He's so friendly.

    re: binding.

    I do my bindings "backwards" from the traditional method. I flip my quilt and machine stitch the binding to the Back of the quilt. Then I flip the quilt again and machine stitch it to the front using either a blanket stitch, a hidden stitch, or a highly decorative one (example: five hearts, three wavies, five hearts, repeat), depending on the mood of the quilt. I am not especially wild about hand-sewing, so this works for me.

    Thank you all for the kudos - I actually sewed that binding on in a contrasting color but on theme on purpose so that I would be honestly portraying my problems with binding. Usually on baby quilts lap robes I just outright cheat and do the turn inside out thing but I'm determined I'll get out of this bind one day...bryanne

    Very cute! I love it! I have a hard time with bindings, too. I have learned a lot here, so hopefully, I'll be able to do better in the future.

    I understood that you used the color for the theme of the scarecrow, I was just saying that if something bothers me I try to not to make it stand out. You should really have no concern about your binding, it looks great!!

    I do a very simple binding; just like the borders. That's how I do the bindings. Not a perfect look but it is bound.

    You did a wonderful job. I do hear you on bindings, though. Keep working on it, eventually it becomes easier!
