I always press the binding open from the front to ease the fold over to the back. With steam, my binding fabric relaxes and does whatever I need it to. Slip on a dozen or so clips and stitch with a tunnel stich all the way up. My Mother taught me the stitch and would always "scold" if I slipped out of my tunnel. ( If she saw anything more than a pin dot stitch she made me do it over). A few years ago I was turned on to a new binding/applique thread by Ronda and it is now my staple. DMC machine Embroidery, #50 in color to match. I no longer need a thread wax to keep from twisting or fraying! ( TY Woman).
Normally I love to bind quilts. Relaxing TV time for me. Not so with this quilt. Too much frogging me thinks.
I have a date with my son Jake today in Paso, so I need to move along this list quickly. I did well on my new WW plan yesterday, however I WAS hungry for snacking. I REALLY want to get back to the gym! I shall leave you with one more picture of Ginny's bath last night! She loves her baths! ( Mufasa thinks she's his baby).
