almost 3 sides done...........

I know this photo doesn't look much different from the one on yesterday's post but I have almost 3 sides hand sewn now.  I have about 10" left on the second long side so that  means I only have one short side to go today.  I also played with fabric and moved out of season clothing yesterday but nothing photo worthy there.

It does take a few hours to hand stitch the binding on a quilt for sure! Sometimes it seems like you will never finish! LOL!! I usually hand stitch my bindings, but for all the baby quilts I have been making lately I decided to machine stitch the binding because 1. it is faster and 2. it will stand up to rough usage.

Forward progress is good. I am a machine stitch binder also. I am sure your hand stitching is gorgeous, but mine is a horror show.

Yay for progress, any progress! I have one that I will be doing the hand stitching on this week and one that needs a sleeve.... I only stitch by hand because I just do not have the patience for machine stitching both sides!

Good morning Wanda...You brought back memories of the '40's today with telling us how you changed out the seasonal clothing. I can still remember my mother doing the same thing, since, at that time we lived in an apartment building, and the closets were very small and were not able to hold clothing needed for the entire year. Clothes got packed away in moth balls and had to be washed and aired out after sitting in the cedar chest for so long. That cedar chest is still in the family being used by one of our granddaughters.

Progress is progress and no need to apologize for photo. I enjoy watching your progress.

It's cold here in Dallas (31 this morning) and my husband won't be home tonight. I can't decide whether to finish hand-binding a baby quilt, play with brand new fabric ($1.75 fat quarters at my local batiks store), baste a lap quilt, or work on a project that's lost steam. I know if I get that quilt basted I'll feel like I've really done something special! But oh, those fat quarters are calling my name....
