I had lost my binding mojo with this broken stripe nine patch quilt . It has been by my chair in the living room for almost 2 months waiting for me to finish binding it. Strangely I don’t mind hand binding once I’ve got going doing it. My problem is I find myself reluctant to pick it up and start working on it. And, I’ve become really good with that on this project. Finally, this last week I picked the project up and worked on it during some teleconference calls. You know those calls where you listen more than participate. Those calls are great to do binding. I then sat for an hour or so on Thursday and had some nice quiet sewing time while I finished the last little bit. It’s nice to call this one done.
We tried taking a picture of it on the back deck but it was so windy the quilt didn’t want to stay still. We did manage to get this shot of the backing material which is a nice soft cuddly flannel.
This broken stripe nine patch quilt is destined for charity, probably the nursing home once things settle down, or should I say life gets more active! If it ever gets more active.

It’s a fun little quilt! I love hand stitching bindings and right now I wish I had a stack to do! I may need to find something else to work on since it seems my quilt making is not happening much these days!
Congrats on a bright and cheerful quilt finish!!
Pretty finish, congratulations!
I have been doing a lot of handwork during my teleconferences too! I wish I had a stack of quilts to bind but I’m sure I’ll find something. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF.
I like that setting. I’m with you on delaying binding. I feel the same way about the final Kirchner stitching and weaving ends in on socks that I knit.
Great finish!! and great use of your teleconference time! Double time – love it!
Well done! I know the feeling with binding. We want the quilt finished, but sometimes it’s too hot to have it on my knees for hours at a time. Yours is finished now, so congratulations. Thank you for linking up to the Peacock Party.
