Speaking of binding.... I nearly didn't have enough fabric left! These are the only scraps left from this project.
I like using my take on Sharon Schamber's glue technique for mitered seams and binding. First I fold the strip and get it just right. Then I press the fold as I slide the ruler off.
This next pic is at a funny angle, I swear the fold is at 45 degrees, it just doesn't look like it. Then I use a little watersoluble glue. Yes, glue. Shoot me, quilt police. Sometimes I just use Elmer's school glue, but this Roxanne's Glue-Baste-It had an awesome tip, so I'm using it and will either buy more, or re-fill it with the cheap stuff.
Apply the next strip carefully lining it up, then press to set the glue in a hurry.
Then I can repeat the process until all the strips are glued to make the length I need. Next, I sew down the fold line.
I stitched the binding on with my walking foot, but I'll finish this binding by hand. Another night or two of Terra Nova on Netflix and it'll be done!
Above is a shot of the back, though I don't think you can see a whole bunch of detail. Maybe I'll get more pics when it's completely done. But for now, it's definitely "Off the Wall" and I'm linking up with Nina Marie.
