I finished quilting my Gypsy Girl quilt yesterday and was ready to bind it this morning. While reading blogs with my morning coffee I saw this machine binding tutorial by Mary. I was so ready to be done with this quilt that machine binding sounded like a perfect option. I definitely need more practice before I show you any close up shots but I was happy with the outcome. I highly recommend trying Mary's technique! I think I'll practice on a mug rug or two!

Another fun project from this past week was a pouch I made from a "deconstructed" Cath Kidston tea towel. I always threaten to cut up tea towels for their fabric, but this time I really did!
I removed the tags and unstitched the hem.
I even recycled the tag! I hope that isn't a violation of any copyright laws. :o)
I have some lovely fabric from Clare that I could have used but I can't bear to cut into it. Do we all have fabric that feels too precious to use? I just need a little more time with it......
Next week Five Monkey Fabrics will be sponsoring a giveaway here so I hope to see you then!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and Finish it Up Friday.
