Binding Olympics

I love the Olympics! I love the competition. I love the stories.
The other day, my long arm quilter, Jackie, called me and told me my Western Many Trips Quilt was ready. Well, what she really said was, "You might want to bring a crane to haul this monster back home." :)  She said I get the gold medal for piecing the biggest quilt ever! LOL. I'm blaming it on Saska though. When I debated making more blocks, she said, "Make it bigger. :)

'Bigger' is 123x135.


Let the wrestling begin:


So, as the London Olympics kick off, I am excited to sit down and watch the events and stitch on what just may be the never-ending binding:

Another quilt that could come to SD I'm sure it is colder here in the winter:) I love hand sewing binding while watching Tv in the evenings.

Excited project to work on while watching the Olympics. It's too dang hot here to do binding on a quilt that big. I'm hot just thinking about it. LOL

OH MY GOODNESS! That is a HUGE quilt!!!! How many binding strips did you have to join together for the binding? Like 15????!!! LOL! I can't wait to see it finished!

At least 13 WOF strips to bind a monster quilt... LOL. Lots of hand stitchin' time. I listen to books when I'm hand stitching so I don't have to look up. Just a thought to make it go faster.
