Pile of binding

I had an unexpected sewing day today, in the middle of the week, as Alex was not well this morning and ended up staying home from school, and of course, that meant I stayed as well. I did a few bits and pieces including a few block lotto blocks, which I will show later this week, but most of the time was spent putting binding on the three (yes, THREE) bed quilts I've had longarm quilted recently. Recently in this context being the past 6 months. One of them, I got back last week and haven't showed yet (and you will just have to wait a little longer on that one). The other two I've had for a while - the scrapbuster squares was done in October and the red and white back in July.  I do actually have plans for all three quilts - the red and white will be set aside as a wedding present for a friend; the scrapbuster is going to live in the boot of the car to be a picnic rug/emergency quilt and the other, well, you'll see sooner or later.  Wonder how long it will take me to bind them - bearing in mind I don't want to lose all my cross-stitching time in the evenings!  Only one of them has to be done soon, so it's not an issue...

What a great way to use up some unexpected "at home" time!

My pile is usually made up of tops and backings -- even though I own a quilting frame I still somehow stall at that point!
