Instead I'm hand-stitching the raw edge by first turning both top and bottom into the quilt. Why, you ask....simply because I'm out of fabric. Yep, I ended up piecing the background for the top to have enough.
It's my way: don't measure then figure a way to wiggle out of the problems. Turning the edges in to close off instead of binding is my wiggle. I could, of course, piece some of the solids for a binding, but I want to give this idea a try.
In the meantime, as promised last night, here are photos of the quilting I did on Sunday. I enjoyed this quilting so very much. I hadn't quilted feathers in a while so it took a moment. I needed the practice and am not one to practice on blanks. I have so little time to play that it's all serious play.
I like the feathers even though I can't imagine that feathers and stars go together. This table runner is for my dining room table, and I can live with the combination, even if it doesn't make sense.
Have you ever finished a project with no fabric left for binding? How did you handle that?
