At 10 p.m. last night it became obvious to me that I wasn't going to finish the hand stitching on the Bento Box quilt. I needed a break from the close work so I sewed the binding on this Trip Around the World and machine finished one side. If you enlarge the photo you will see it is not perfect. I am going for "done" instead. Most of my quilts are given to non-quilters and they don't even know what I'm talking about if I mention binding. If I tell them I hand stitched the binding and show them, their comment is usually "I can't see any stitches". In a perfect world I would have the time to hand stitch all of the bindings.
