This little quilt measures 15 x 19. The binding is very narrow and I love it!!! Here is the story behind that!
Yesterday afternoon, while I was quilting away on this little quilt, a man my husband worked with for several years called DH. We haven't seen him in at least 2 years. He asked if he could come by and visit with us and of course, we were glad to see him. Anyway, about 20 minutes before he arrived, I decided that if I got that binding sewn together and machine sewn onto the front, I could sit and visit and work on hand stitching that binding down. So, I ran into the sewing room, dug out what I thought was the 2 inch strip bucket and grabbed several red strips. I sewed them end to end and as I pressed them in half I realized that they were awful narrow! I had grabbed the 1 1/2 inch strip bucket!
So, what's a quilter in a hurry to do??? Go with it, of course! So, I got the binding sewn on by machine, hand sewed while we visited and FINISHED IT! Now, I know that that huge binding would have been a huge mistake! I think they call this "Serendipity". I've never used such a tiny binding, but I've discovered that for a small quilt, a small binding is perfect.
but when it's new to you, it's Serendipity!
Have a great weekend and Happy Quilting!!!!
