Table Runner Number Three is bound.
Here are some details of the binding on this piece.
The tape measure has been included in the photograph above to provide a sense of scale. The seams perpendicular to the edge in the wider finish come to about 3/4 inch. The same seams in the narrower finish come to about 1/4 inch. I like both finishes and would choose one over the other solely based on what I think would work best with the design of the item to be bound.
In addition to this table runner finish I have been basting a great number of hunter green hexagons. I may be using these to finish off the Diamond Quilt eventually, or they may go into some other project. I’m trying a new method of basting hexagons. Up until now I have pierced the paper when binding my hexagons, which allows stitches of the basting thread to show on the front of the hexagons during piecing. For these green hexagons below, I am trying a method that doesn’t pierce the papers, and which will make it unnecessary to remove the basting stitches to remove the papers. I have to admit that one of the reasons I am trying this other method of basting is because it will make for more aesthetically pleasing progress photos. It takes longer to baste this way, but I think it will be a wash because I will probably recover the time by not having to cut basting threads and remove them later.
