I think binding a project is intimidating for some people. I was noticing binding on a quilt my mother made me in the '70s (hand quilted).It was single fabric bound the old fashioned way. I'm sure it was scissor cut, too. We've come a long way from scissors and single bias.
I'm always happy to help with binding. My sisters like to have me cut their binding and sew them on their projects. I'm glad to do it.
These are my sister Polly's table runner gifts for Christmas to her friends. They turned out so cute that binding them was a treat. I showed the mug rugs Polly made in a previous post.
I gave the runners back to her just like this and she can hand stitch the binding while she watches a good movie. Or 2.
My sisters and nieces got together in March this year to make the blocks. It is such a fun and easy pattern
Polly had 4 table runners to bind. She has a few more to put together before she is done. I'll be happy to help her with those, too. She's got some lucky friends. They will love her gifts.
I offered to help bind this charity quilt the women at my church were donating. It was the least I could do to help. My schedule doesn't give me much of a chance to serve in many other ways. Some lucky family will really enjoy this quilt.
