Oh My I Cut Something Wrong

  The other day I decided to work on the binding for my country style quilt. I had made the backing from all those 4 inch squares.  This is an old method of binding where you bring the back to the front to form the binding.
   I have done several quilts this way and I always struggle with the corners-they are super bulky so have to be cut down and for me folded several times to look right.
  I have been dealing with an allergy "attack" for the last few weeks now which leaves me "spacey" do to blocked and draining ears. I am not one to sit around and do nothing so I thought this would be an easy project to get finished.

Wrong lol  Instead of unfolding everything and checking that corner point I just started cutting-so now I have a mess on my hands and need to figure out what to do-well I need to sew on more fabric that's for sure. I have let this sit for a few days so now is the day to tackle this.
   I may just need to take apart a four square block and replace that-but that also involves undoing a couple of tied knots that holds the quilt together that I don't really want to do. 
  Larry always says don't do stuff like this unless your feeling good enough to tackle it-so true lol
  I think this will be my challenge today especially since it is taking up space on my living room floor.
  Stay tuned

Happy Friday everyone


  1. I've been where you are with this, always challenging to get those corners right. Good luck!

  2. Oh my, so sorry, but I've done the same thing a million times. It never pays for me to knit or sew when I'm under the weather. Gardening can be a disaster then, too, when everything looks like a weed. o.O
    Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Hi Kathy, here is my method for making the binding from the backing, it is the last one of three methods I show in this post - - maybe it will help you with your corners.
