Entering the Home Stretch

I've almost got the challenge quilt quilted. Just slightly over 1/4 of the borders to finish quilting. I gave up for the day as I was getting a tension headache and a very stiff back from quilting...

I also started prepping the binding. I'll be doing the Ricky Tims' method of piped binding, so I cut and made the piping and cut the binding strips.

Hopefully, I can get it in the mail on Monday or Tuesday at the very latest! And post pictures of it ;)

I'm curious about the Ricky Tim's piped binding? Where can I learn how to do that?

the piped binding is shown on his Grande Finale DVD. It is sewn totally by machine (I seem to be allergic to hand work :P ) and it a finish that always seems to get comments :) I highly recommend the DVD.
