Recently I was discussing the possibility of starting a little business of my own, Bonnie's Bindings, where I would offer binding services. A friend overheard my conversation and asked to be my first customer. She had four quilts waiting for binding, a chore she dislikes intensely.
The first quilt she wanted done is a quilt she is donating to an auction to raise funds for an organization. It is a king-size quilt. Wouldn't you know that my first job would be the biggest possible! It was hard to maneuver the bulk and weight through my small domestic machine when I sewed the binding to the front of the quilt, however it was wonderful to do the hand sewing with the quilt draped over my legs, keeping them warm in my chilly house.
I love doing binding, even when it is miles of the same leopard print. The quilt is not mine to show, but here is a peek. Trust me, it is stunning!
