aw ... come on!!!

almost to the end of sewing on a side of binding 
and the stinkin' bobbin runs outta thread...

it happened a coupla times...
two table toppers, three wall hangings, one tree skirt, three baby not-gender-neutral quilts, two table runners, and one quilt
this stack of twelve 
yes, TWELVE!!! can you say PROCRASTINATE? 
are bound 
and a few are even labelled...
most of the dirty dozen are small 
still - ALL of them had four corners 
and i only complained about how long it took to do the hand sewing four hundred thirty-seven a coupla times...

i solemnly swear hope that i will never again let the Needs Binding Pile of Stuff take up more than one shelf ... never never EVER!!! 
cuz i do not like not liking sewing down binding 
and by the last stitch of that pile i was really, really not liking it...

and now i'm gonna fill some bobbins...

I just had an 
"out of bobbin" 
experience.
It was scary.

I am amazed. What a lot of quilts! I myself like sewing on the binding because it makes it look so much neater. But maybe yours look neat to start with.

Yikes! That's a lot of binding in one fell swoop. I love binding though, so I'd be in hog heaven LOL!

For me the binding is one of the sweetest parts of making something 'cause it means I'm almost done and D-O-N-E doesn't happen half often enough around here!
