Does that make you cringe? Or maybe you are one who enjoys to do the binding on your quilts?
For me, it's not my most favourite part, but it's not my least favourite either. I think I like it because it's a sign that all my hard work is about to pay off with a finished quilt. :)
One of the reasons that I didn't enjoy it very much (notice the past tense) was because my thread would always tangle and knot up and I'd say some not so nice words. I tried cutting my thread shorter, but still had issues and in most cases, I wasn't using "cheap" thread.
Then...someone (was that you Grey Cat?) told me to try silk thread. At first I thought no way. I'm an Aurifil girl so I wasn't so sure about this but I was frustrated enough to give it a go. Off I went to JoAnn Fabrics and I picked up one spool of silk thread by Gutermann.
Let me tell you, not once did my thread knot up. Not once!!! The thread slid through the fabric so smoothly. I couldn't believe it!! It also washed up just like my cotton threads did!
From now on, I am only using 100% silk thread for my binding! :D
How about you? What do you use?
