Slow progress

October 19, 2008

We've been going out all week to watch the Red Sox games (we don't get TBS), and when we get home, I've been working on my quilt binding.

I used this tutorial (this one had prettier formatting, but I prefered the way the first one handled the starting edge.) Both of these were recommended by Crazy Mom Quilts, who's been churning out tutorials of her own all year. Creating the binding and machine sewing it went quite quickly, but handsewing the back edge is massively time consuming. I'm gradually getting faster, and I'm about 75% of the way around, but it's already been an eight hour project. Whew! It's so incredibly crisp and pretty, and I can finally see the light/finished quilt at the end of the very long tunnel, so it feels worth the effort.
