I sometimes sew the binding to the back and use a decorative stitch on the top, especially on a baby quilt that gets washed a lot.
I'll have to take some pictures.

I do the same.
karensquilte said...Mel, it's a lot easier to sew the binding on the back and then topstitch on the front
Thanks for the tip! That is precisely what I tried first, but unfortunately, the decorative stitches that I wanted to use didn't work with the walking foot so I decided to try the other. LOL!!! I keep trying new things :)
Thank you :) I'll give it another try. Anything's easier than hand stitching! (sorry to those of you who like it, but...not me!)
I just took my 12 place setting w/all serving pieces intact, to my son. I've had it packed for years as I wasn't using it anymore. His father & I picked it out together in 1972 in Japan. Son didn't have any kids until 3 yrs ago. A girl, so he has someone to pass it on too. He opened up one of the bins and just rubbed it with his fingers.
PLUS it gave me a flimsy excuse to make a 2500 mile road trip to get it to him. Along with a bunch of other family heirlooms that were his to start with.
Leaving for Houston.....
We have a bit in common. We bought our 8 piece set of china in 1973 in Okinawa. Our daughter and her family received the set early last year. And all the pieces survived Hurricane Dorian in September!
