Binding and Scraping…

I love to bind using my Wonder Clips…

See how my needle just slides into the fabric below the Wonder Clip??

I use 7 for binding… just a number that has always worked for me to keep up with….

Here is a close up of what I am talking about too…

When placing the Wonder Clip on your binding place it about 1/8″ from the edge of your binding… and you can stitch away without removing the clip if you like!  Then move them all when you reach the end of the clips if you like!  Makes it a little of a game moving the 7 clips around 🙂

I am really enjoying the binding on this little quilt and am linking this post to Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching HERE… 

Also we are still scraping the floor in our kitchen… in a quest for a tile floor instead of the 1990’s vinyl that has resided there since casa del loro was built!

Here was our progress Saturday morning and a good view of our kitchen floor..

We now have over 1/4 of the floor mostly stripped of the vinyl with more soaking and scraping to go to get down to the bare concrete… it will take a bit we think now!  They glued this entire floor in 1990… no floating in that era! lol

Hope you have a happy rest of your weekend… and don’t forget to make time to

    Woo hoo – the end is in sight for that sweet little quilt for your sweet little one … It's getting closer and closer to time for her to make her appearance! Wow … that's going to be a lot of work on that floor – but it'll be worth it! Hope you'll show some after pics.

    I learned to bind without pinning and clipping. A Lot less work. I have thought of trying these little clips for machine binding both sides though. Oh you couldn't pay me enough to scrape that floor. LOL I am binding my baby quilt today as well. Debbie

    I have never used Wonder Clips, but I will keep them in mind. I rarely pin my binding. I just sew away. Good luck with getting that floor up. What a lot of hard work.
