I have been a busy little bee lately fighting to finish the quilt for Pat before I leave. I am not quite done, but pretty much there. I had to stop for the night because it was late and my machine is fairly loud.
I started off the quilt by quilting a seam with the walking foot along each side of each seam with a 1/4" allowance on each side. Here's a look from the back.
After I did that for the whole quilt, I flipped it sideways and did the same thing the other way. Thankfully it was a lot easier to do that once I'd done the one direction. I have a feeling it will take me a lot of practice to get the hang of this, it was tough with such a big quilt.
The thread I used is variegated brown/cream/gold. How perfect could it get?? Anyways, I made my binding and then sewed it onto the front. I only have to finish that up and the quilt will be done. SO close!
The binding is a red (quite clearly) with a small star/flower type fabric. I thought that a high contrast binding would add a little interest to my fairly monochromatic quilt. Tomorrow I'll post a picture of it all finished up!
