Evidently for me, a traditional quilt binding can take 9 years, lol.
I don’t make many utilitarian quilts and I’ve never liked sewing traditional quilt bindings, but I made this ‘modern’ quilt for the bedroom we renovated in our house in Austin Texas almost 10 years ago!
Shortly after the room in Austin was finished, we moved back to Los Angeles and 2 years later we moved to Chicago. I guess with all the work of moving and resettling twice in a fairly short period of time, I kind of lost steam and forgot about finishing the quilt.
I decided, it was time to finish the quilt before I pack it up and was shocked when I counted how many years that quilt has been without a binding.
I look forward to sleeping under this quilt in a few months when I get resettled in Northern California!
