One Binding Down, Three to Go!

I sewed bindings on 4 projects. I got one hand sewn on the back  last night while watching Criminal Minds (one of my favorite shows, by the way). This is a table runner that I made from the Missouri Quilt Company's tube quilting tutorial. I usually call it tube piecing because that fits better to me. LOL  They make quick little table runners.
I quilted this while I was in Kansas City watching Izzie and Noah. Little Izzie loved to run her fingers over the quilted area. (grin)
I haven't washed it yet, but I just marked it with a chalk marker, so most of it has faded off.  I love this black fabric. I have used it in several projects.
Of course, I have to show the back. I love the back of a quilt. I actually picked a fabric for the back that the quilting stitches show up. (grin)
Now, tonight will be another binding while I watch either  reruns of NCIS or CSI and The Mentalist. Hmm, which sounds better? Can you tell I love the criminal investigation shows? LOL  My dh goes to bed with the chickens, but I can't fall asleep that early. So I stay up, watch tv, and do handwork.

It has been raining since last night. We have water standing everywhere, but they say it is going to clear out tomorrow. Supposed to be 86* on Saturday. We will go from having  heat on, right to the ac. LOL Got to love Missouri weather.

Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.

I did watch that tutorial and found it very interesting. My sister loves all those shows you mentioned too...especially Criminal Minds. She keeps begging me to watch it...I am afraid it would scare me too much....I live with a criminal mind!!!!

I love those kinds of shows too, especially NCIS. That black fabric is so very beautiful!!

Thank you for showing the quilting, I've been trying to think of how I was going to quilt the borders on my current project and that rope type pattern will be perfect!!

Happy stitchings!

That is so pretty, Winona! I love those colors together! Do you use contrasting thread for your quilting or clear or white? I gueass it depends on the project, huh? (Little by little I'm going to trick you into teaching me how to make things looks pretty like you do.... mwahahaha... *LOL)
I love those shows, too- I just recently saw Criminal Minds for the first time and really liked it. I love those 48 Hours mystery and Dateline shows- they're like real life whodunnits. It amazes me how warped people lives are! LOL
