Making Binding......Yuk!!

I am doing one of my least favorite sewing tasks, today. I am making the endless strip of black binding, which is what I most often use to finish my quilt edges. This is a tedious task, and I would much rather go on to a new project. I have explored other finishes, but I personally like the neatness of this edge. So, on and on I go, sewing this three inch strip, folding it in half, steam pressing it, then carefully laying it on and pinning to my quilt edge. I will sew it on, turn the edge and tonight while I watch TV, I'll do the other hated step.....hand sewing it all the way around. The reward here will be....another art quilt finished! Now to make the label!
