Throwing in the towel for the night. I’ve slip-stitched less than a quarter of the binding and it’s taken hours. Will resume tomorrow when the light’s better and hopefully I’ll speed up.
This afternoon, during nap time (when else?), I attached the binding to my quilt and mitred the corners as I went.
After that, I had to do a lot of unpicking where you could see the seam I’d done round the edge when trying to see if the quilt was square before trimming it.
Tonight, I’ve begun slip-stitching the binding to the backing. Not as quick as I thought it’d be.
I’ve forgone the gym in the hope I’d finish tonight but no such luck. Tomorrow is d-day then, which is a shame as I was hoping to wash it before the weekend – which is when I’m hoping to hand it over.
Here’s how it’s looking.
