You know how it goes...
the quilting is all done
so you have to make the binding.
Measure and measure
I wanted to use some stripey fabric from an old kimono
and if my maths is correct I need to cut 25 strips!
It's only 13'' from selvedge to selvedge.
And as I started to sew I started to panic.
Doesn't seem like I have made enough...
And then I knock one of the dials changing the stitch and snap the needle.
Lucky I find a new packet of needles
Then the bobbin runs out.
It's done now
and my favourite bit...
hemming the binding.
