|adding binding to a Quilt of Valor|
As I neared the starting point, I was worried I wouldn’t have enough binding to finish the quilt, and I knew I didn’t have anymore of the blue fabric.
I’ve played “yarn chicken” on some knitting projects, but this is the first time I played “binding chicken.” In the end, I had 12” of remaining binding, but even that was much closer than I like.
Wow a holding your breath experienceReplyDelete
But, you made it!!!! You are a binding chicken winner!ReplyDelete
So glad you made it! Playing chicken with yarn or fabric is scary!ReplyDelete
You did make it! 12" is not a comforting amount, but you did WIN!!!ReplyDelete
Woo hoo!!!! I've played that game too recently using up scraps for my placemats. It's not fun. I am the worst at trying to figure out how much of anything I need.ReplyDelete
Whew, that must have been a hold your breath time. But you made it, with inches to spare!ReplyDelete
I have played binding chicken before! I now have an app on phone - Robert Kaufman quilting calculator or something like that - it helps with border, binding and backing yardage! I love it!ReplyDelete
You made it but I know how you feel. Twelve inches is cutting it a bit close for quilt binding. I have been known to piece small pieces together to make it to the corner.ReplyDelete
A close call with that binding. I recently had about the same amount left on a baby quilt. There was a little more of the fabric in the scrap bin but I was glad not to need it.ReplyDelete
Oh, that is very nervy! lol It is complicated when you don't have enough length for the binding!!!! Looks like a good choice to finish it!ReplyDelete
