First off, thanks to all of you who left comments on my last post, regarding my binding frustration. Many of you suggested using a hand-quilting thread for hand-stitching the binding to the back of the quilt, which is something that honestly never crossed my mind! Hand-quilting thread for hand-stitching. Hmmm. Seems obvious, right?
Armed with a new spool of hand-quilting thread, first up for repairs is my Sweetwater Pure quilt. Closer inspection showed that the binding had come loose in quite a few places. Ugh. So I sat down with my seam ripper and quickly took out all of the binding stitches and will re-do the whole thing. I don't mind - I actually love doing this step of the quilting process.
I'll keep you updated down the road whether this was successful or not. I sure hope it will be!
