What do you think? Na I wouldn't want a quilt full of pins either. That's why I finished up the first go round of bias on this border. A second bias will be added in the dark blue of the Killer Whales, not sure how I will move that one over the quilt. Any suggestions? A simple mirror around perhaps?
Making the bias reminded me why I hate my bias tape maker and everything that goes along with it. One of the little dresses I made for DD's Kailey doll used the shortest piece of bias ever, a mere 9" or so, didn't even need to use a "maker" for it, this on the other hand was much less fun. I figured I needed 120" and made about 130", my scrap piece is right around 15" so I couldn't have cut it much closer.
DD helped me hold the quilt, so let's take a look at our happy model. Not bad for an afternoon of sewing. I was concerned that I didn't have any thread to match so I went with white bobbin thread and it blended in just right.
