A Snow Day

I have a few vacation days to take by the end of the year, so when the forecast was for 12-18 inches of snow, I decided to take one and stay home. I caught up on the laundry, and cleaned out a cabinet that had been overflowing with "stuff." Then I made some binding.       

I have three quilts that need binding, so I figured if I was going to make binding, I should do them all.

Here are the three bindings I made.

I sewed the green binding onto the Jealousy quilt.

Because I have to sew the binding on the Jealousy quilt because it will be going to its home on Christmas, I turned the binding over and pinned it all around the perimeter.

I like to pin the binding all the way around before I hand sew it down. It's a lot easier. It also gives me the opportunity to get a preview of the finished quilt, and OH BOY am I glad I decided on this fabric for the binding instead of the plain orange I originally selected. It is going to be great!

Your quilts are so beautiful! Is there any chance of a tutorial for your diamond quilts???

The perfect binding for this beautiful gift. Taking a snow day was a smart choice. The other bindings will make good projects for these freezing days.

Good call on taking a snow day and on the binding choices.

What a lovely quilt; we only got 3" of that "white stuff"--hubby and I are not Wintry weather fans--so we'll be staying inside and eating leftovers today...:))) hugs, Julierose

Oh my yes! The binding brings the whole quilt together beautifully! It will make someone very happy this Christmas :-)
