Binding on the Wonky Cabins

I finished sewing the binding on last night while I watched "Blind Side." I thought this would be an appropriate movie since I was doing the "Bind Side" of the quilt, haha!

Great movie. Great actors. But no one to watch it with. I hate watching good movies without my Bear....but I digress.

Back to Beary Wonky Cabins by the Lake.

In keeping with the scrappy look of the quilt, I did a scrappy binding too and pulled all my reds and blues out of the binding drawer and pieced them all together.

I love hand sewing a binding on a bed size quilt. I'll do a machine stitched one on wall hangings and table toppers, but I prefer the old fashioned way on a full-size quilt for some reason. A quilting friend of mine said that I was backwards in my opinion on this, that I should do it faster on a bigger quilt, and take my time on a quilt that didn't take so long to finish. I don't know. I guess I'm just weird like that.

I'll be sending a picture of the finished top to Bonnie Hunter to post on her website. She shares pictures of your quilts if you have made one of her patterns. I originally found her crumb tutorial and I knew I had to make one of these, since my boys have bunk beds, I need to make another one; maybe even two, since I have three boys in that room; although Boo is still in a toddler bed.

I've also been playing with these blocks for Christy. They are pretty addicting too. I'm ready to sew the "X" together today. I'm so excited for her to see them. You can read about the quilt she is making for her hubby here.

Your quilt looks fantastic, and I can't wait to see what you've done with the X block. ;o)
