What my cats do all day while I am at work.

Here is my big boy. Do you see how he is not working on that binding... I may need to work on that sewing lesson a bit more...
Speaking of binding, I did get my binding onto the Doll Quilt. I am getting close to having 5 out of 8 things done my Thanksgiving. (Yes, I am avoiding my albatross...)
If you use Minky with a top, do you add batting? I am not sure if it is necessary... I plan on wrapping the wide border to the back for a self binding & finishing that on the machine. The border is 10 inches wide, I hope to end up folding it in half, so that the machine stitchig is along the seam where I attached the border. I chose 10 inches, because I thought that I was going to be able to "shirr" the two edges - ending up with a ruffley "puffy" border - I think the foot that I was sold goes to a serger, not my sewing machine... BTW This is the yellow quilt on my list. The center is a beautiful Alexander Henry bird print.
