I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, two Essex and one Singer 20. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

PREPARING TO ADD THE BINDING

SMOOTH OUT THE BORDER

TRIM UP THE SIDES PARALLEL WITH THE LAST SEAM

MAKE SURE THE CORNERS ARE A TRUE 90 DEGREE ANGLE (THIS ENSURES A NICE MITRED BINDING CORNER)

Then go out for coffee with best friend:-)

I'll be sewing the binding on tonight!

Cheers from Helen
