A Lovely Year GOAL for June

Another month and other project to [hopefully] cross off the mahoosive to-do list!  I achieved my May goal yay) but missed the deadline to link up.  Silly me.  That's what I get for juggling too many balls at once (especially since I don't know how to juggle)!


My June goal will be to attach 400+ inches of binding to my 'King Kong Wonky' quilt.  I had it long-armed by Debbie thank goodness but now I have the arduous task of stitching the binding on.  By hand.  400+ inches.

Quilted in an on-point square grid.  Should wash up wonderfully!

Wish me luck!

It's beautiful! There is no way I would sew the binding by hand on a quilt that big... Oh my gosh! But good luck with it! :-)

Lovely quilt and I too love hand finishing the binding.. it just makes you feel good.... and its a good time for social stitching as it doesn't need your full attention..

How beautiful! Wow 400 inches is an obscene amount of binding...

Heidi said...

Gorgeous finish, and worthy of every stitch!

What a great quilt. I really love the handwork in stitching down a binding. I'm also too much of a perfectionist to do it any other way.
