I'm doing the mini quilt swap as organised by Lucy Locket. This weekend I'm going to make a start with it - finally! I had been putting it on the back burner because of the craft stall but now I have some time to devote to it.
One thing I was quite apprehensive about is binding the quilt - something I have never done before, and I needed to practice this before I do it for real, so I dived into my scrap bag for some fabric bits.
The first thing I turned to in terms of advice was this:
but I've never really been good at learning by reading, I'd much rather someone showed me what to do. I kept searching and found this, which was much more helpful to me.
I also grabbed the mini quilt which I bought from syko recently to see how she had done it: and felt quite reassured when I did my practice run on my fabric scraps:
If the weather is anything like as nice tomorrow as it has been most of the week then I might even drag the sewing machine into to garden and sew out there.
Speaking of tomorrow, it will be a momentous and special day at monda towers - I'll share more of that with you tomorrow though :o)
