Complete Insanity

Here's the picture of total insanity.  I'm adding a scalloped binding to my already 100" quilt.  There are about 104 scallops, and they are about 3-1/4" long.  Or I should say short.  It took a whopping 6 hours to machine stitch the binding to the quilt.   I predict about 10 hours to hand stitch it down.  I ought to have my head checked!  It will look great, but really?...about 10 minutes per scallop?!
