Today I made a striped binding for a quilt which I am just finishing. Bindings are joined with a diagonal seam.

When I opened out the seam this is what I found…


Finding this made me imagine what it must be like to win the lottery!

Just so you are not totally overwhelmed by my utter awesomeness, this was the next seam.

That is how it stayed too.

  1. You can’t win ’em all! And anyway, you wouldn’t want it to look like it came from a factory……….

  2. My seams would definitely look like the second version!

  3. I guess the moral is if you win lotto don’t bother taking another ticket!
    I am very impressed by the precision.

  4. My heart swelled for you! That happened to me once!

  5. Wow to your first one.That is worht at least 30 minutes smugness in my opinion.

  6. Ah, yes, the angle on the binding. I admire anyone who can pull those together quickly and effortlessly!

    Hey! Hey Melinda! I can see the mistake this time! Woo hoo, look at me, I can see craft errors!!

    (still a pretty error though, and I know it’s not an error per se, but it helps my case with Melinda, so go with me on this one)

  8. What a great post! Aren’t those crafting success moments the best feelings in the whole world!

  9. Perfection indeed. But that comes from someone who would consider it a good effort not to have sewn the binding to some part of myself or my clothing.
