Hanging to dry off of the amazing and wonderful new deck, hence the binder clips so it wouldn’t fall.
I machine-sewed the binding last summer (yes, 2010). It sat around like that for a year.
I love my machine quilter. She does fantastic work.
A month or two ago, I needed to do some hand sewing to finish the rep weave placemats that are handwoven and currently on my kitchen table. So I kept my hand sewing kit out and buckled down and sewed down the binding on this quilt.
This is my first time using a wool quilt batting. It also has a flannel back, which makes it unquestionably a winter quilt. The fabrics are the Bali Strips, purchased with a pattern at The Quilt Company. Very simple sewing.
Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her mind about whether or not it is actually winter yet. Add that to the fact that we just insulated our attic, it’s been tough to tell when to change over to the winter bedclothes. But it’s on the bed now, and I’m quite pleased with the finished project.
Huh. Maybe I should get back to the quilting thing more often!
