Binding

This week I'm very pleased to be binding my Rouenneries quilt started at a 2009 workshop with Kerry Swain at Calico Crossroads.


 The lovely quilting was done on a long arm machine by Leanne. She has done a beautiful job.


I'm not the quickest of binders but I do quite enjoy it, particularly while watching a good murder mystery on TV.
The new series of Midsomer Murders is on tonight so should get a bit done. It will be nice and cosy with the quilt (and most likely a cat too!) on my lap.
