For those of you who don’t know, #PDSI stands for Presidents’ Day Sew-In. We Twilters use any excuse for a sew-in. So I took full advantage of the time/excuse yesterday.
First, I had to do some cutting so that all my pieces for Charlotte’s Surrounded by Scraps Mystery were ready to use.
Most of the cutting was background fabrics, which I’m doing scrappy. I did do some cutting of colors also.
Then I got to do some sewing. I had to choose between Step 2 of Surrounded by Scraps or putting the binding onto the front of the 2012 FQS Designer Mystery BOM. As you can see, the binding won.
Let me just say that this is the second time I’ve used the Fons and Porter Binding Tool. These two bindings have been better than any I tried on my own or with the other Binding Tool. So I’m thinking the Fons and Porter tool is a keeper.
As you can see, the binding is on the front and the quilt is waiting for hand sewing to the back. Maybe later this evening. A finish is in sight!
