A Friday Finish


I got my scrappy "Red Pepper" quilt back in the mail on Wednesday so nothing else got done in the sewing room today until I got the binding on and clipped down so I could see how I like my binding choice.
This quilt already had over 1000 squares in it and I think I didn't use any fabric more than 3 times so my binding choices were endless! In the end, the black with white dot won out. I am happy that I chose that particular fabric since it really adds "something" to it.

Now, do you girls out there use these clips to hold your binding down while you sew? I'm having some trouble finding them here in NJ....I'm tempted to just go to the grocery store and buy some in the hair care department.

Ummm...doesn't everyone buy them in the hair care dept??? Too expensive at the quilt shop for the exact same thing. I love the binding you chose. Perfect.

I always buy mine in the hair care isle, also.

I tried them and didn't like them. I find it just as easy to do the binding without them.

I've never tried the clips...I just pin. Love the polka dots!
