Yesterday Kelli took a vacation day from work and was home to work on the Perkiomen Daydreams quilt with me. While I was busy finishing sewing the last few rows on the quilt, Kelli started getting binding strips ready.
She cut the 2.5″ strips, sewed them together and then pressed them. Then she started to wrap them around her ruler.
She just turned her ruler as she wrapped. (ignore the white fabric scrap)
In a few twists she had the binding all in a neat little bundle.
Isn’t that slick? I don’t have the 4″ x 14″ Omnigrid Ruler that she has but I am thinking about purchasing it just for this very task. I have the 6″ x 12″ one but I don’t think that one would make as neat little bundles.
So family members who are reading this and fretting about what you could get me for Christmas…..here’s a hint!! I promise I won’t purchase one until after Christmas….
