Things I am making...

I grabbed a bunch of my sewing themed fabrics on the weekend and made your basic quilt as you go 3 binder cover.  This was a first.  I thought it would be a good thing to do.  I have been using this binder for all my quilt guild stuff.  I need to be organized because I am the incoming president of the guild.  Eep!  This is what I have learned when making a 3 ring binder cover.  I made it too small for this binder.  It is just a little too snug so I need to look around for a slightly smaller binder for this cover.  I like the way the binding works.  And another first, I actually machine stitched the binding.  I have n.e.v.e.r. machine stitched binding before.  I was thinking it would potentially be a complete disaster but it actually worked really well.  I don't know that I would machine stitch quilt binding but for something like this.  You betcha.

Then I started a little plus quilt just for fun.  I love making these.  I get such a kick out of the perfectly matched seams.  So there.  My work in progress Wednesday report on a Tuesday.  Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.  And now I am off to a meeting!
