I did some feather quilting on all the blue borders and around the outside
And now onto the binding....yippee! I am using up all my scraps leftover from piecing the top, and thank my Stashbusters group for all the great ideas I have learned about using up scraps.I love binding a quilt!
Here are the top 3 reasons why I love it...
1. the quilt is almost finished
2. the quilt is almost finished and
3. I am almost finished this quilt!!!
In 1996 on a quilt I made for my Mom, I tacked the binding by machine, but didn't like how it looked. Ever since then I sew it down by machine on the top, and then hand stitch it on the back.
Here are the fabrics I am using up in this binding. Happy binding dance!!!
How about you...do you enjoy the binding part of quiltmaking???
Kitten update...for those who have emailed me about the baby kittens in this post...they are all doing exceptionally well, even the littlest one! On Monday they moved out of the vets' office and are on their way to the families who applied to adopt them. My daughter is delighted and takes full credit (even though she didn't do a single night feeding!!!).
