Binding time!

Time to finish a few quilts that are just waiting for their binding!
The first quilt off the ranks will be another Jelly Roll quilt that I designed but never wrote up as a pattern because the little 'squares on point' border, made from the 'negative' blocks cut up, had too many bias edges and were very stretchy and fiddly to sew with.

The fiddly bias cut square border on the left
Not sure to use the grey or the red for binding??
Why the sudden urge to bind? Well last week I bought a you-bute binding ruler to try. It's 'The Binding Tool' by TQM. I will have a go at using it and let you know how I go! I have checked out the instructions on some U-Tube clips so think I know what I'm doing!

Block 2 Block Fabric Stash BOM

I have finished making my B2B blocks and made 7 extra blocks to bring the total to 25.
Now I am thinking of putting a 1" sashing between the blocks using the lovely brown you can see in the picture. My mind is ticking over as I would like to design a border using the leftover fabrics from the blocks.... watch this space......
