Five days away in the caravan for a long weekend can generate a lot of laundry. Especially when the sheets and towels were added into the mix. So that was my focus in the morning – get that washing done and hang it out in the nice warm sunshine. And I even ironed it all in the afternoon – so I’m feeling rather pleased with myself.
With that job done I could finally get on with machining the binding on my grand-daughters horse quilt. Luckily I had planned ahead and the binding was all prepared and ready and waiting to be attached. I don’t know what others do, but I stitch it on with my walking foot and then carefully trim the excess backing and batting off.

So now I’m up to pinning the binding over to the back and and stitching it in place. This is a large quilt, so its going to take me ages, I’m sure. But never mind, it’s quite a restful thing to be doing, stitching the binding down, no matter how long it takes. It will be completed and all wrapped up by Christmas, of course.
