Fabric Tuesday!

Welcome to Fabric Tuesday!
Edition 5

Every Tuesday we share a recent craft finish that uses fabric. Whether you have a project to link up or you're coming to look, make sure to stop by and comment on all the great projects!

Tonight I got to do one of my favorite things.

Bind my quilt.
Sit on the couch.
Be with my love.

My favorite part of the whole quilt process?
BINDING!
as in handstitching it to the back, the very last step

What about you?
What's your favorite part of the quilting process?

I will post this finished quilt within a week or so.  It's almost done, I've got about 1/2 of it left to bind.  This was my first time using a multi colored binding and I think I like it for this quilt.


Also check out my latest post on Fresh Poppy Design of some cute fabric bracelets!

Binding is my favorite part also. Sometimes using the machine to piece and quilt just doesn't do it for me. I need to do hand stitching. That's one of the reasons I also crochet.

I love that hand binding, too....the only time I really ever watch tv anymore!

ahh i'm jealous!
i'm ALMOST to that point w/ my quilt (obviously) and i can't wait.
i just finished my LEAST favorite part -- basting! it took forever to pin that bad boy.

your binding looks great!
what did you watch?
Are you a Castle fan? I watched that last night. Can't wait for Modern Family on Wed.
Wish we had DVR though!

I agree with you, I get so much satisfaction in binding my quilt. I also get excited to see how it comes out of the dryer after it has been washed.

I love doing the binding, because it's usually the last time I get to spend time with the quilt! Most of the quilts I make are given away, so it's my chance to enjoy the work I've done and give it one last goodbye!
