Last year I quilted my niece C's first quilt. My mother helped her with the binding and taught her to do the handwork. I told her that if she ever needed me that I would be happy to be her Binding Fairy. She got most of it done, but then got really busy. So she decided to take me up on my offer.
I finished the binding for her and then added some stitches where hers were a little too far apart.
It is now waiting for her to come pick it up. I think she's excited to be able to use her quilt now.
I recently got a picture of my niece R's finished quilt. I also quilted it for her last year. She had a Binding Fairy too. However, her binding fairy was her mother, my sister. I love that she decorated her room to match her quilt.
I have one more niece who needs to finish the binding on her quilt. Three other nieces are still working on their quilts with my mother. Cheetah has picked out fabrics for his second quilt to be made in the same pattern with Grandma. He chose cheetah prints. Surprised? I thought not.
Have you ever had a Binding Fairy help you?
P.S. Hi, R. I love your quilt in your room! (R is really the only one in my family who reads my blog regularly that I know of.)
