Binding, Clips and Rope Bowls…

Friends, I hate to be the bearer of “bad news” but the piano key border on my Dresden Plate quilt isn’t going to happen. I just don’t have enough fabric. I bought the fabric for this quilt four years ago, and well, procrastinators can’t be choosers. I am, however, doing the binding in the dark grey fabric that matches the backing, so that will be nice. I like it, and I hope you do too.

I received my 100 piece clip set that I ordered from Amazon for only $8.99 (free shipping!) and I must say I am very pleased! I was concerned that the quality would be lacking, but they are very sturdy and strong! Even my husband was impressed (which is not an easy feat!). You can still grab your set here. (affilate link) I had enough clips to hold all the binding in place on my quilt, an oversized queen, with plenty left over. Love it.

How about the cute rope bowl they are in?! Vicki Wimsett over at Sewing Doe made me a set of these amazing bowls. I have a large one and two smaller ones. They are great for holding all kinds of goodies. I love supporting other artists, especially when they create things I love, but just don’t have the patience to make myself! You can check out Vicki’s Etsy shop here. Tell her Four Peaches sent you! If you have a fabric you’d like her to use, like I did, you can send her that and she will make custom bowls just for your decor. How fun is that?!

    • This quilt is so large that I did clip all the way around. I am finding it easier that way because of the bulk. When I am working on a smaller project, I will sometime do what you do, or just be lazy and not clip at all. I like having enough clips to be able to choose what to do based on the project. Also, I remove the clip in the area I’m stitching because they do get in the way.
