I'm a quilter. Almost all my quilts are made with my machines, but the last part - stitching the bindings to the back of the quilt - are always done by my hand.
Currently, I'm stiching the binding to the backs of 9 baby quilts (if I get my rear in gear, it will be a total of 14 quilts, once all the tops are quilted...) that I've quilted. So far I've completed four, but I must confess that I've had some help.
Smudge is very interested in making sure I'm doing everything properly:
Pixel, of course, prefers to sprawl and demand Skritchiestm when it can be squeezed into her schedule. However, she did bestir herself to confirm Smudge's assessment of my stitching:
However, there was a certain element of frustration, and so she decided to sulk - as only a cat can really sulk (but she did make sure she could snuggle-test the quilt while she was sulking):
Then, both kitties decided that the quilt on my lap was theirs, and theirs alone, so they quickly moved to lay claim....
Soooooo, I didn't get as much done with the bindings as I wanted, but now I know I have deputy Snuggle Testerstm if Darling Munchkin is incredibly busy....
