Caught in A Bind!

Quilt from Modern Basics done in Gypsy by Felicity Miller

well here I go, my first blog post . . . Opened this blog account last fall and just haven't gotten around to using it. First too busy then went back and forth on reasons to blog and who would even want to read my blog (not the writer type). Have finally come to the conclusion to just do it for me. Kind of like a scrapbook/diary. Not sure if it will stop my from starting too many projects in a week but who knows!

This week I've been caught up in binding. Finished four quilts recently and it was time to get the binding on them. Did it all in assembly line, cut, piece, stitch. Sewing on binding with my dual feed on my BERNINA 830 and my 10D foot makes it go by quickly!! Then my favorite part of all quilt making, throw it in the washer and dryer and wait to see the crinkle reveal.
Got these done just in time as I went on my first quilting retreat this weekend, I got seven of my quilts in progress finished! More on this next time . . . .

Tally for the week - 4 quilts complete through binding, 4 quilt tops ready for backing to be pieced and 3 quilt tops ready for borders

pictured are: Tying the Knot in Breakfast at Tiffanys, Tossed 9-Patch in Fa La La La La, A Modern Log Cabin in Botany, quilt from the new book Modern Basics in Gypsy.
