Hello, hello!  Well, it was back to the real world today and man that alarm clock was not welcome.  Can y'all relate?

Just sharing a leftovers project ...

Didn't think I should let the center of my Flurry Tree Skirt go to waste!  I think it will be a cute oversized coaster/mug rug.  :-)   And, can I just say ... I used to be biased about bias binding.  Didn't like it.  Didn't want to make it.  But, now I am a fan.  And I think my corners turn out better when I use it.  Which do y'all prefer - bias or straight grain?  Or does it depend on your project?

Back tomorrow with my WIP list for Rhonda's Finish-A-Long.  (You think hand-stitching the binding down on this one will count?!  LOL)

Happy Sewing! :-)


  1. Awe, what a great idea! I think it will be lovely. I've never cut bias binding...so can't really say...but I"m sure it works much better for rounding corners and the like.

    Can't wait to see what you've got in a pile that needs to be finished! =)

  2. i am lazy about cutting so i prefer straight. but i have tried bias on some clothing and let's just say i need more practice!

  3. Mostly I don't use it, but if I have difficult shapes then I will cut bias. Linda


Thanks for stopping by - we love hearing from you! :-)
