Quilting

Finished Quilt

I just finished sewing the binding on this quilt, and couldn’t wait to show you all.  I am really happy with how it has turned out and am loving working with linen.  I think the linen gives it a fresher look and is a good contrast to the vibrantly patterned fabric.

I don’t mind hand sewing the binding on as it gives me a chance to admire my work, but I did find that my hand seemed achey at times.  Then I found this post from Leslie which lead me to this tutorial on metred corners and this video on machine sewing binding.  So I think I might give that  a try next time.
