A Stack of Binding


Four of them waiting

Several weeks ago, I loaded a large backing onto Vivian (Gammill Vision). My bars are about 96 inches long so that limits the size of any quilts–no king size–queen size is a stretch—but good-sized lap quilts are perfect.

This backing was a 108 inch wide and I loaded it with the selvedge on the leaders; then the batting to cover it all and THEN two quilts with one pantograph pattern of circcles; and then on the leftover part, two smaller pieces individually quilted. I’ll show those when they get their bindings.

Evenings we spend with Netflix or other streaming services; and it is my time for hand-work—and bindings are perfect. The first stitching is done by machine and the last by hand.

When I first bought that Gammill I had several dozen tops to quilt.

I now have just eight waiting. And a backing is loaded for three of them.

Getting to the point where I can finish a top and immediately quilt it is not far away.
