Community Quilt

I've been doing the row by row quilt, a row each month so I can't show you that. I have made a quilt for a little 6 year old (well just the top for now I have until October to finish it). This is a community quilt. My quilting club that I belong to makes community quilts every 2 years so here is a photo of my contribution.

Bias Binding

I have been making 1 1\4" bias binding for my eyemasks. This takes a while but once it is done it lasts a couple of years. Made from a metre of material I suppose I get about 40 mtrs of binding. This is the website for the instructions for continuous bias binding. 
Above is a photo with the cutting lines. And a view of how to iron the folds using pins.
