On to more exciting things. Last night I made this.
I'm guestimating that's about 20 metres of bias binding - much more than I need but when making this stuff you may as well make too much rather than not enough. I can always use the leftovers to bind small projects later. My leftover bias bindings even have their own shoe box in the sewing room (and they do get used - it's not an ever-growing stash like the sock yarn... I ordered some more sock yarn today.... I'll post about that once it arrives).
Bias binding not exciting enough for you? What if I tell you that now the bias binding is made, I can spend this evening doing this?
Yep - I finished the Plain Spoken quilting on Monday night while watching Shameless (I love this show - one of the characters called her twin babies Nigel and Delia - how OTT cute is that?) so it's full steam ahead with binding and the quilt will be finished entirely by the end of January which is ahead of schedule - with far less stress than last year's wedding quilts.
This year there won't (*touch wood*) be any landmarks that require quilts. I have several quilt UFOs (see the WIPs on the side bar - although that doesn't quite show all of them... ahem...) which I aim to finish, but there are no deadlines. Woo Hoo!
