WEEKEND SEWING

On the weekend I managed to sandwich together and quilt a quilt top which I had sewn up in May for my friend's 60th Birthday.  So it was time to cut the binding, I used my trust GO machine, all cut out in a few minutes, so happy.  



Sunday afternoon I sat for a few hours to hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt.  I haven't hand sewn binding on for a long time as when I make quilts for Aussie Heroes I do it all by machine as it is much quicker plus more sturdy.  I'd forgotten how long it takes, it took me another few hours last night to finish the binding plus hand sew the label onto the back of the quilt.


I will post a full size photo of the quilt when I can manage to take a photo on the weekend in the day light.

Cheers
Kaylee
