Yeay for another sewing intensive bank holiday weekend. Today I will apply to the hem the bias binding I made yesterday.
As I have grown sew attached to hand sewing since starting the quilt, I think it would be sacrilege at this point to let my lovely quilt go anywhere near a machine, so on with the hand sewing.
The bias strips I had cut had several joins as the piece of fabric I had used was only so wide. I wanted to make sure that the joins would not be too noticeable and were placed symmetrically on the petticoat. I took this in to account when pinning the bias in place before sewing.
See tomorrows post for pictures of the binding and quilting finished.
