RSC 15: A Binding Trip Around the World

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects for May are wrapping up.  There is still a week's worth of time to play with green scraps, but sewing will take a back seat to other priorities over the next few days.  I'm looking forward to visiting with family in Florida and when I return, I'll be busy with an assignment for work.  By then it will be time to contemplate the RSC color for June!

My RSC accomplishment for the week was to make 10 yards of continuous, double-fold bias binding for my green Trip Around the World quilt.  I used up a big hunk of that leafy fabric for the binding, so there are only a few scraps of that left.  I attached the binding to the quilt last night, so now I'll need to stay focused on doing 10 yards of hand-stitching!

Binding isn't all that exciting, so do check out Angela's SoScrappy blog for plenty of green, scrappy inspiration!

  5. Making binding can take a long time if the quilt is big! I just finished my scrappy trip around the world quilt a couple of weeks ago too.
