I'm with you! I love sitting on the couch and stitching on the binding while listening to music or watching
a favorite movie. Feels so good to finish up a quilt. :-)

Me too!

It's my favorite part too! I don't know why I find it so satisfying, but I really do. I watch any one of the Harry Potters any time I bind a quilt.

DebbyMc said...

Yep! Cuz the next step is: DONE!

Karamat said...

Me too!! Best excuse to sit on the sofa & watch a movie :)

I love that part too! Looks like a lovely project to settle in. I can't wait to do some of this over Christmas break.

Kristen said...

Pretty.

I think I agree, the binding is the less stressful part of quilting for me.

Trudi said...

I love it too, means I'm almost done and can snuggle even longer!

Anna said...

Well, now I know where to send my quilts for binding. :p

My favorite part is piecing the top, everything else is just a part of the process until I can give it to someone.

Cindy said...

I don't enjoy binding but my 74 year old mother loves to bind so she is my binder.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

me too! Also loving that green backing fabric!

Denise in PA said...

Me too - it's so very zen! o:)

Joyce said...

I love sewing the binding down. I'm so in love with it, I actually volunteer to do quilts for my friends!

I always say that's where the karma is added, in the hand stitching. After I've handled a quilt for the final time before it goes to its true owner I know that there is love infused into it.

My favorite part is choosing the fabrics, but doing binding has never been a drudge. Hey, I bought some of those binding clips in RED.

Kristin said...

Oh goodness, mine too. I get so giddy when I am putting those last stitches in. :)

Do you like it because it means it's almost finished or because you like hand sewing. I don't know how I would answer this. I am 50/50
