I did my binding by machine as usual. I begin by attaching the binding to the front of the quilt. From there I fold the binding to the back and either use these awesome little clips or just pins. I should have used more since a few areas didn't get 'caught' while I was stitching in the ditch. Wonder Clips seriously are wonderful though - so much easier than pins.

The Wonder Clips left on the hanging are indicators of where the binding didn't get caught. Most of the areas are very small so i plan on trying to machine the areas with invisible thread and seeing how that goes.
If you are interested in this fabric I suggest visiting River City Quilts in Mankato, MN. They still appear to have a large selection of this line even though it is from last year. I visited the shop while on the MN Shop Hop a few weeks ago and they still had charm packs!!. This fabric line is also featured on the cover of the new Quilts and More Fall 2012.
I am really looking forward to a 3 day weekend coming up. I have a few projects in my sewing room that I would really like to tackle but time has just not been on my side lately - especially since I started reading those darn Hunger Games books! I should be finishing the last book early this week though and then things can get back to normal :)
If you are here from the Blog Hop I hope you are having a great time and I hope to see you again!
If you have been here before --- Thank You!!
