Congrats on twins!

Maremare that quilt is lovely!

I should have a finished quilt by the end of the week - half about half the binding done.

Here's my first project without binding, its a table runner/hot pad for my friend Lyds:


I put binding on it after I took the pic and of course am unhappy with it so Ill be spending this evening unpicking it Sad

Also, I really need to work more on "pressing" vs "ironing" and patience, lol. I am a lot better at slowing down and spacing the project out though, so that's a plus Grin

Does any one use a mini iron for seams when piecing?  I"m thinking of using a coupon and getting one of the clover ones that has the little tips.  It seems like those would be good for seams

I have one of those mini irons but I never remember to use it!

Cute table runner. Aw man, picking out binding sounds like the least fun thing ever...except maybe for picking out quilting!

Yea I'm not looking forward to it. It's 33" by 12-ish" so its not super huge. I machined the binding down when I should have just hand stitched the final part. So I really only have to unpick half of the binding, but still....not my idea of a good time!

I keep looking at the mini irons too.  I saw a tute where they used one to press out french seams on bags and pillowcases.  Looked handy.

It's finally done!!! So basically it broke down like this:
Took all of "P.S. I Love You" to unpick the machine sewn top stitching of the binding. Started hand sewing while watching "Easy A", finished sewing and burying threads just before "Now You See Me" ended.

And I think I'm officially in love with Clover Wonder Clips Roll Eyes



And of course nothing I do is ever done without Murphy's approval (aka, human didn't realize she'd made a kitteh heat mat, must make one for feline overlord asap!)
