I don’t always have a ton of time to sew. When I do get time, it’s usually little spurts and I have to be very intentional.
This week I’ve been working on finishing a Christmas quilt for my family and a Christmas gift for a friend. Monday morning Anne decided she wanted to help so I taught her how to calculate binding. She measured each quilt, figured out the perimeter and then used the calculator to divide that number by 40. She was able to tell me how many strips I needed for each quilt and she was able to practice her fourth grade math skills. I’m very proud of her.
This morning I took 30 minutes before I left for work and sewed the bindings to each quilt. Now I need to decided if I’m going to finish them by hand or by machine. How do you like to finish your quilts?
