The binding is on the little quilt and it will be ready to go to Sit and Sew tomorrow where I will get some of it done. Thought I would show you my method - I don't miter the corners. Started doing one side at a time when I first started quilting over 35 years ago and, although I have done a few mitered corners, I seem to stick with this. The most awkward part of mitering is joining the binding on the middle of a side. I guess if I stuck with it I would love it. Will not say you can't teach an old dog new tricks as this old dog learns new tricks every once in a while. Just used to this.
Here is the front of the bound edge. The tab leftover will be trimmed and tucked under.
The finished edge of the little birdie quilt. A bit tricky to do, but so is the miter.
The front of the little quilt. I, like most of you I am sure, find binding the least favorite part of quilting but the part that really sets the quilt off. And it is a mindless task that you can do without having to concentrate. A great piece of handwork when you are with other quilters.
