Well, there are 3 things that are official. First off, I totally love quilting, even if I'm not a professional and EVERYTHING isn't perfect about them. I enjoy choosing the colors and fabrics. I enjoy cutting the pieces and sewing them all together again. I love choosing the backing and putting it all together.
Second, I totally dislike quilting on my sewing machine. YES, it can be done, but if I had my choice, I'd have a short arm quilting machine in my home and I'd quilt away. I'd probably not have 12 quilt tops that need to be quilted. I'd most likely zip out quilts before you could count to 100.
Last but most definitely not least...I absolutely HATE, and yes I said HATE, making the binding. I don't mind cutting it, but I do HATE ironing it. I could buy the binding, but that would be a waste to me when so many have blessed me with fabric beyond my capacity to house it. However, I would most definitely like to have one of these Bias Tape Maker. How much binding I could whip up in minutes????? Only God knows!!!! ;-)
A girl can dream can't she???
