So here's a quilt that behaved beautifully from start to finish - including having just the perfect amount of polka dot fabric for the binding. Yippee! Don't you love when that happens?
|Please excuse the helper on the right of the picture. Can't wait til she's big enough to hold the quilts for photos!|
I think this is the best binding I've done yet - which isn't hard considering I'm still a newbie to this binding business. I don't hand sew so it's all machine done.
I did muck it up a bit in that I meant to sew it to the back first and finish it on the front, giving the front a bigger binding. But I went into autopilot mode and just sewed. Only noticed when I went to put the finishing touches on. Oops. But it's okay - I've decided I like it this way as a thicker binding might have been a bit too much with so many different fabrics on this quilt.
Linking this finish up with TGIFF which is over at Don't Tell Quilts this week! :) Check out her cute little argyle robot quilt!
This Week at Love Affair with my Brother because I'm a bit pleased with this quilt :)
