Quilting done and binding attached!
When thinking about how to quilt this, I realized I could use the seams as guidelines for rows of quilting kind of like using a pantograph. I decided on feathers and holly leaves. Here is some pratice "quilting" on my clear plexiglass.
Hand sewing is not for me, so I machine stitch the binding to the back first and then sew really close the edge of the binding on the front. Here is a close up of sewing the binding to the front.
I use the same thread in the bobbin that was used during quilting.
It leaves a line of stitching along the back and I can live with that cause I know the quilt is done and that's what matters!
A close up of the front and the back. I used So Fine thread in Petal on front and back.
This is how the front binding looks:
I hope you'll create something soon!
Here's a cute little boy's quilt that I just finished. It's from a kit that I've had for a while.
I named it "Oh the Places You'll Go" cause of all those planes, trains and cars and knowing you'll be thinking about the future of the sweet little fella who receives this quilt and all his adventures.
It's quilted with loop de loops; and when I saw that blue fabric called mini mountains, I knew it would be the perfect backing fabric and add to the adventure theme!
This quilt is simple strip piecing with two rows of square in a square blocks. (the kit had 3 rows, but I'd had enough after making enough for 2 rows, lol) Do what works for you!
I hope you'll make something soon!
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
