Afternoon Sewing, originally uploaded by jenib320.

Today was a good Tuesday. My busiest day of the week is Wednesday so usually my Tuesdays are super hectic trying to get things done. Not this one! I still had plenty of homework but not too much and I was efficient! This gave me time to sew and watch Up! I started working on the binding for my quilt today, since it is currently on it's way to being quilted! I sent it off to be quilted Monday. I am super excited and want the binding done when it gets back.

I am making the binding patchwork as well. Since the front and back both are I decided it would be fitting for the binding to be as well. Plus I don't have a lot of each fabric to make it all one pattern and I didn't want to buy any new fabric for this quilt. Stash only! (well except the batting but that doesn't count!) As I was making the binding using Christina's great Binding Tutorial Series I started accumulating little triangle scraps when trimming. Instead of throwing them away/in the scrap box I decided to sew them together. This little block is the result. I think I'll make it into a coaster! I used an 1/8" seam allowance if anyone is interested!

I have about 2/3 of the binding finished. I didn't feel like measuring as a cut out the original strips so I just cut a bunch. Now I just have to go back and cut more!
