Catherine Whall Smith . . . admits she has a lot of BIAS!

“Hay . . . Keep Your Distance #6” – needed a lot of BIAS binding and a REAL name – so because of the scissor images in one of the fabrics – (see detail below) it has been named “Cutting Hay”.

 

 

 

 

 

The hand quilting is done, so now it is time to audition the binding. Picture below left shows cutting the 2 inch binding. I always cut my own BIAS bindings so that I can get the correct size for the edge. I also decided to include a small piece of my “corona virus” fabric in the bias binding.

 

     

Eventually the bias strips are stitched together and pinned to the edge of “Cutting Hay” and machine stitched in place.  The bias strip is folded back, basted to form a finished edge, and hand stitched to the back of the piece. One more task done!

SAQA Benefit Auction UP-DATE: Total raised so far including Diamond Day is $36,150. You can learn more about the SAQA Auction at https://www.saqa.com/auction .  I’ve been eyeing #109 – “Imagining Escape” by Candance Hackett Shively – I think it speaks to how many of us are feeling.    “Stay Safe . . . Wear A Mask!”
