Today my view mostly looked like this...
My Siblings Together quilt was basted, quilted and binding on, all by the time the sun came out and made the conservatory too hot to sew.
In that time I also had a visit from the RAC man. He wired on my exhaust pipe, as the car was making horrible noises this morning; fortunately for my sanity and purse it is only a broken bracket.
So just now I thought I would machine stitch down the binding, for the first time ever. I hate it. I got halfway round and decided enough was enough. I only have about 180" to rip out. I really think I should be putting a fancy un-picker on my birthday list what with the amount of time I have spent with my cheapo one this last week or so!
Do you machine stitch down your bindings? Am I the only one who thinks it looks rubbish? Or am I the only one who makes it look less than acceptable? I do love finishing of my quilts by hand, which, it would appear is a bloody good job!
