BIAS BINDING and NEW SHELVES
Good Afternoon to everyone! It has been quite awhile since I have had to make bias binding. I began yesterday afternoon and it was a disaster. So, I walked away and waited until today. Using the book Big Book of Best Loved Quilt Patterns and their instructions, with the fabric shown I was able to create a big roll of 2 and a half inch bias binding for the quilt that will be entered into my first ever quilt contest! I really doubt that I have a chance at winning, but it does not matter. First off, I will receive a free yard of any fabric that I choose and second well it has taken me years of quilting to even get up the courage so I have done nothing but gain confidence!
I also wanted to show off the FABULOUS shelves my hubby just finished making for our kitchen. We live in a Mobile Home with limited cupboards. So he built these. I just love them and am so proud of him!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a extra special day yourself! Now off to start doing some quilting on this quilt!
