A large part of my hand sewing last week was finishing the binding on blue split 9 patch. I don't always finish the binding by hand sewing but I did for this quilt.
I had purchased this stripe to use as binding for another project but then changed my mind. I thought it was perfect for this scrappy quilt.
The binding strips were cut at 3" so there would be a 1/2" of stripe on each side of the edge.
I posted more information about the quilt on Friday's post.
I won't be keeping this quilt for myself, it's a present for a May wedding.
I appreciate all the concern and suggestions about my cracked fingers last Sunday. I've tried various products over the years. Superglue is the only product that stops the cracks from getting larger and actually makes them heal faster.
I have dry skin which is manageable most of the time. But when we have an arctic front come through, we need to turn on the gas heater to supplement our furnace. Our home really is dry then and the dry air just makes cracks in my fingers.
They're healed now and quilting has started again.
