Sewing doesn't always mean sitting in front of a sewing machine. I sew a little each day, and something I am sitting with my feet up in my recliner!
I have been elected to be the quilt hemmer in the NFQ. That means that I bring home most of the quilts when they are ready for their binding. Right now I have 8 quilts waiting in the wings.
I finished 2 yesterday and turned them in today.
These are the next quilts waiting to be bound. Since this photo was taken, I have two more done and a third about 1/3 done. I hope to have at least 2 more done to turn in this Wednesday! Hand sewn binding is the way they like them for the Sale/Auction.

Oh...how purty does that bundle of gorgeous quilts look sitting there in all their glory!! You are a treasure, Miss Vicki!!
That pile of completed quilts is the most rewarding feeling isn't it! Your work on these is truly a work of heart!
I agree that a hand finished binding does look very nice. But what a load of work that is. And seeing the pile growing... I would be tempted to just start sewing them by machine and turning them in that way. You are a trooper, Vicki!
You are amazing! I have to say I enjoy the process of hand sewing bindings but it is time consuming indeed. What a lovely pile of beautiful work!
Lots to keep you busy there! xx
I love hand sewing binding - good luck to you with that pile but I know you're so fast you'll be through them in no time :D
Simply lovely! You certainly have lots to keep you busy :) Hugs and blessings!
Kind girl! taking that work on. Your fabric is lovely.
great stack of work and beautiful quilts!
I can't believe you finished hand sewing all those bindings already, Vicki! You are sew determined! And you work is a great benefit to your cause. Great job!
There must be smoke coming off that little needle!! I enjoy hand sewing too, but I don't think I could finish the amount of work you do in the same time. The quilts do look cozy all folded up together :) Wendy x
Lovely quilts! It is heart warming how each person contributes their strengths to the group to make people's lives a little cosier.
Pretty quilts. I sure hope you enjoy the hand binding!
