surprisingly satisfying

Binding happiness! My very first binding. I feel all grown up now.

I didn't think I would enjoy making binding, but I did! These are for the two quilts I have on the go at the moment. It was very soothing ironing long strips of fabric, and the thriftyness of using up all my scraps appealed to me as well.

This is for my boys orange quilt.

This for my turquoise, red and purple quilt. They make me think of multicoloured snail shells.


  1. Welcome to Blogland! When I make binding...I pile it into a baggie for safe keeping! :)

  2. Welcome to Blogland Bellsjo! I hope you have lots of fun here. I love the bright happy colors in the quilt you're working on -- your binding pictures are really pretty!

  3. Hello....just wanted to wish you a happy welcome to Blogland, and to tell you how insanely jealous i am of your homegrown asparagus !!! Sounds divine.
    Love to you
