Slow Stitching Sunday - June 9th

In last week's Slow Stitching post I said that May had been the month of bindings.  Well it looks like June is going to be another month of bindings.  That's really OK with me as the binding is the last step before a finish and I really like finishes.  

The binding for Sweet Treats got made on Friday and machine stitched to the front.  Yesterday, I got started on hand stitching it to the back.

I've just turned the second corner, so just two more sides to finish.  I have some chores to do this morning, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to finish up the other two sides during the NASCAR race this afternoon.  If that does happen, I'll have finish number 4 for the year.    

Check out Kathy's Quilts for glimpses of more slow stitching projects.

Like you I have a few things to do this morning but plan on devoting the rest of my day to piecework

I wish I was finishing my sweet treats! It's such a great pattern.
Your backing and binding fabrics are so them! It makes the slow stitching even more sweet!
Thanks for linking up!

Finishing is always sweet in the backing and binding choices. I'm a new follower and will look forward to reading more.

Congrats on the almost finish. You sure are doing great in the finish department this year. Such pretty backing fabric... I'd linger on the binding just to enjoy looking at it.
