I've been ready to start a new project for a little while now, but I promised myself I'd catch up on a few things first. I now have 5 design boards finished using Lori's tutorial. After using the mini-board Lori gave me, I knew I had to finish the edges of the four I'd previously made. With these finished edges, the batting doesn't separate from around the edges of the board.
First, I finished the edges of two of my 15" design boards using Sew Cherry scraps (I didn't cut any strips to make mine--I just used strips from my 2 1/2 scrap boxes. I sewed them together on the diagonal to get enough length. This would also be a great use for left-over binding strips.
Then I finished my other two boards using some Central Park and Terrain strips. They went together really well--Lori's tutorial is excellent. My only complaint is that I hadn't used a glue gun in a while and burnt a few fingertips!
I finished a binding that was on my "to do" list...
And I made a couple of bindings that are now ready to be sewn. It seems like summer is silently slipping by...so I'd better get working on all the things I want to finish before school starts again! Plans for Saturday include making a few Farmer's Wife blocks and starting something on my "I Can't Wait to Make This" list...do you have one of those lists?
Hope you have a wonderful Sewing Saturday!
