Bound -

I was on a roll - 
And in the mood to bind something - 
So I kept going - 
And my Karma Churn Dash is bound - 
Ta Dah! - 

Yesterday I was asked 
How do you connect the ends of your binding when you have it in 2 colors?
I make my "Flanged binding" using a method that I found in a YouTube video - 
Jordan Fabrics - Flange Binding - HERE -  
It is my all-time FAVORITE method for making binding - 
How to sew the "join" is around the 9:35 mark - 

So -
Binding takes me a little time - 

Because I do it in three steps - 
  1. Stitch it to the back of the quilt at my "walking foot" machine - with the big tables in back and on the left side - to hold the weight of the quilt -
  2. Cut and sew the "join" at my "piecing" machine - with the 1/4" foot - then press it away from the top - because the ironing board is next to my "piecing" machine -
  3. Then I go back to my "walking foot" machine to stitch it down to the front - and sew the label on -
But - most importantly - 
Binding takes me a little time - 
Because I have to be in the mood to DO it - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Thanks for the video link- I like the way she does the join better than what I did. Love the flange binding even though it is more work.

Nice finish, pretty quilt!
I have to be in the mood for several processes in quiltmaking, and getting in the mood isn't instantaneous. Some times more than a year......
