Binding for Life Is 'Tweet!


 I worked all Sunday afternoon on the pieced binding for Life is 'Tweet.

This is kinda, sorta what it's going to look like. I wanted the pieces of color to be of varying sizes and irregularly placed.


Only to realize that I couldn't sew it to the quilt until I made the hanging sleeve.

I pulled this greenish teal paisley from my stash and made the sleeve last night.

I stitched the binding to one side, then it was time for bed.

*Regular readers know that I do my final hand-stitching on the front of my quilts. You can read the story about how this came to be, here.

I like it!! Isn't it aggravating to think you are in the final stretch only to find you have one more thing to do?

Excellent plan - and why did you ever doubt that the wing chair belonged in your new studio!?!?!?! It is perfect!
