Another Round Tuit

All right! So I'm awarding myself another Round Tuit today, for my work last night and today. I got out the binding fabric for Kiwi Twist, my king-sized quilt. I haven't done anything since Quilt Diva Yuki quilted it. (Yikes!)

See why I had Yuki quilt it? She did this freehand! What a woman!

What's been done:
  1. Got out the binding (it was already cut.)
  2. Drew the diagonal line on the end
  3. Sewed them all together with a diagonal seam (it's stronger!)
  4. Iron it and rolled it up on a TP tube
  5. Unrolled it and creased it with the iron
  6. Rolled it back up again
  7. Cut the excess backing and batting off the quilt
  8. Looked up the instructions in a Quilt-in-a-Day book
  9. Sewed the binding to the back, around the quilt with 1/4" seam, leaving 8" free
  10. Sewed the ends together, correctly (I think there should be a way to do it diagonally but I probably won't figure it out)
  11. Finished sewing the binding down. (Phew!)
  12. Got out needle and thread (It counts as a step!)
  13. Started sewing the binding to the front by hand. I've probably done about 90" out of 400", but it's moving along
Still to Do
  1. Finish hand-sewing the binding
  2. Make the label
  3. Sew it on

Congrats and Yippee! The quilting is great, she did a wonderful job. I looked at a previous pic of your quilt and it's wonderful.
