(For the record, I hate spending large amounts of time cutting and I don't really care for ironing, but it's necessary drudgery. I wish I had an ironing fairy! Or cutting elves.)
I loooove the fabric I used for the binding, I might need to get some more of it. I think it would work with a lot of different color schemes.
- Pebbling is hard at first, but once you get a rhythm going it's not so bad.
- Pebbling uses a ton of thread
- Pebbling takes forever
- Pebbling looks really pretty!
- I will probably never use pebbling on a quilt!
