This is a picture of my machine binding.... I love binding by machine. Love it.
Its taken me a long time to learn to do this well, and I love that it's all machine, all the time.
No handwork for me... hoorah!
I can't believe its Wednesday already...

I quilted my "job" and then my time was my own to work in the studio before I got more outside work. I have one more job in my que but it isn't in the house yet. Speaking of which, did you know I take quilt jobs? Would you like me to quilt your quilt? Most jobs under 75$!
Shameless Pitch over.
I needed to work on my Project Improv Quilt - remember how I said I was doing a "Big Idea" quilt... Boring and abandoned... auggh! Now I am open to any idea...

I put on "Mr. Smith Goes to Wahington" and started goofing around.

and hmmm... how do I feel about that? Anything raw edge needs to be pinked- that's what I think.

so then I tried this with a fat quarter... the white bits are place holders for fabric.

Here it is finished.. It's 30's fabrics and it's really a Fabric Doodle.
Took me a good part of the day - but still a doodle...

Here's where I am going with it...

Using little barkcloth squares and a solid. This is a block - its gonna get trimmed to 10".
I have no idea if this is where I am going or what is gonna happen with it...

I'm feeling so inspired! I love the idea of a fabric-doodle. I may need to try that!

Most impressed by that machine binding! Can you let us in on how you do it??

Kim said...

Are you going to have a machine binding class? So very interested..

I would love to hear any binding pointers you might have to offer. Mine NEVER look that good.

I also wonder what your tips are for machine binding. It always looks awful for me. I've given up and gone back to hand stitching for my doll quilts.
