Plants and Quilts









 I had to show you a picture of my beautiful Siberian Irises.  I took these pictures yesterday morning when it was still wet from the rain.


Cleaning in the sewing room included putting a binding on this quilt.  My friend Rachel got me into using the hair clips to hold the binding in place. I love that I don't get stuck by pins anymore.  I bought the hair clips when Hobby Lobby had them 50% off.  Love those deals!  And the clips work so well that I need to get more so I have enough to go around a larger quilt.  I'll have to watch for another sale.

Wow, the irises are stunning! And yes, I know what you mean about the clips...what a world of difference they make for the binding!

Karen, that is such a cool idea! I am going to have to try this out too :) I hate getting stabbed all the time.
Your Irises are beautiful :)

I like the hair pin idea. I hate getting stuck by pins as I am sewing on binding...when I actually get something bound!! :)
