Remember the placemats I was playing with made from blue and white half sqaure triangles?
I just can't hand sew at all. To write, I'm left handed but my brain cannot compute certain things in the left hand so I use scissors, rotary cutter, knife and fork, mouse etc all with the right hand but sewing just doesn't seem to happen in any hand at all!!! So no hand binding for me at this stage.
For the next placemat, chevrons, I'm trying a different binding method where you cut your backing fabric bigger than you need, do the quilting, then fold the backing fabric over and bind that to the front of your project. Very handy for small projects like mug rugs and placemats apparently!
Wish me luck!
