Thanks for linking Julie! :) I can't wait to see it finished with the binding. Also, I love the baby quilt you're working on!

I love binding, too! Of course I need to get a few things quilted first so I can do that!

Very cute dots in Nicey Jane. I was reading your pattern last night and thinking about what fabric I would like to use!

Love the Nicey Jane Dot Quilt. Be sure to show it again when it's done.

Don't you almost get frozen with the decison of what to pick up! I know I do but the binding, oh my how I love that stage. Right I have 4 waiting for me to finish them.

Lots of things at this stage in my studio, too. Somehow, when I get really close to being finished, I seem to lose steam. Perhaps because I enjoy the journey with each quilt so much that I don't want to let it go just yet.

I love doing binding! Someone came into the shop the other day whining about how binding is so awful blah blah... weirdo. Btw for a sick person you're pretty productive. Stop it. Making the rest of us look bad.

I have a ton of WIPs right now too, it feels like none of them will ever get done! I love the NJ dot quilt!!

Your binding comment reminded me that I need to thank you for your binding tutorial! I just finished binding my first ever quilt and it came out perfect.

Quite a productive week! Your zipper promise looks just like the way I put zippers in, which I love doing for a cleaner fit.

Do you think that you like binding because it means that you are coming down the home stretch? You're such an inspiration to so many people.

Inspiring as usual! Love your dot quilt. I love stitching binding on too, so soothing I think! xo
