Kathy has started posting a linky on Sundays for handwork. When I saw it earlier today I was inspired to settle in and enjoy a little hand sewing. Like Kathy, I still do all my bindings by hand. As there are now 7 quilts in the stack needing finished binding work, I thought I should get started. I got some easy thread needles while I was out on Friday and wanted to try using them to finish off the joins where bobbins run out or threads break during machine quilting. While doing the binding I like to inspect the quilt, get rid of all the little loose threads and generally admire the quilt a little. Hand sewing binding is a long patient process, so it allows plenty of time for all of that. While I had handwork in mind, I went ahead and printed out some 4.5 inch blocks that might work with my Midgets. I think I've just about finished everything that isn't paper pieced and so searched for a few correctly sized blocks to work into the mix. There were some block of the months from 2010 on the Dear Jane sight that I thought might work nicely.
