... or My Way!
There is a lot of conversation on the "proper" way to hand-turn a binding.
This is MY Way ...
... with the quilt in my lap and the edge on the table/counter. I stitch from right to left. I have friends who rest the quilt on the table with the binding closest to them. Which way do you turn a binding?
I say, "whatever floats your boat" as long as the result is the same!
I spent most of Saturday at the kitchen counter stitching down the binding on "Royal Wedding" (Cathedral Stars). My goal is to get it done in time to enter in a local quilt show next weekend.

It's November 8, yesterday was our coldest day so far this Fall and look what's in my garden ...
... the Encore azalea is still in full bloom. Honestly, this is the prettiest it has been in the 7 years we've been here. (And I can't believe it's been 7 years!)
I tried to catch the gorgeous sunset, but my camera was not liking the low light.
The blur is kind of artistic, isn't it. At least you can see the stunning color.
By the end of the day I had accumulated all my essential tools close at hand ...
... TV, tablet, USB-powered LED light/fan, Clover Wonder Clips, Clover needle threader, scissors, Thread Heaven, 40-weight thread, and the critical glass of zinfandel.
The binding was counted out when I made it, so another week with nothing in and nothing out.
Linking up with Patchwork Times.
