And lo, there was bias binding in adequate amounts produced!
And it has been attached to the entire front of the Decade Quilt!
Yeah, note to self: when one is stopped in the middle of making bias binding from two pieces of fabric by the implosion of the second piece of fabric, make a note of what size you were making before setting it aside for two months before you can get to the second piece again. Much easier than prying apart already ironed binding to measure that...
This is the biggest quilt I've ever made, and so it's the largest amount of binding I've ever made, and I can't lie - if I ever make a bigger than crib sized quilt again, I'm going to need to find a bigger cutting space. The dining room table was not cutting it on this one. Consequently, there are going to be a few places where the binding is a little tight. I'm chalking that up to homespun individuality.
So I'm actually done with the machine sewing portion of this quilt, and the rest of the sewing is all sewing I can get done watching TV some evening. I may actually manage to finish this thing...
