I sandwiched them, quilted them, added the outside binding and whip stitched it to the back to finish the edge.
I used some vintage Hoffman fabric that I adored.
It's hard to use beautiful fabric in bindings as so little shows, and you've folded them in half so half the fabric is hidden anyway.
But when it goes, it goes and you use it.
Took it to the machine, carefully sewing the quarter inch seam with the walking foot, removing the pins as I got to them.
For 78 inches.
Then realized I was out of bobbin thread.
Back to the table no time to cry over spilled milk, repinned, rewound a bobbin, put the quilt back in it's chair, and slowly carefully sewed the seam again.
And absolutely invisible join on the front!
The quilt is big and heavy and wadded up on the table here but you get the idea...
Lots of people quilt by check, which is their choice.
I am a quilt maker, a quilter, a possible control freak but definitely with an artistic temperament.
I know what I want. It's one reason I cut Cole's hair myself, as I am picky and want him just so.
I want my quilting just so, and I LIKE QUILTING.
I have to figure out how to get 'er done each time.
I am also working on a paper pieced tree block quilt with pieced in words, and my Seurat Challenge piece but they will be for another day. Other posts on QAYG listed on tutorial page
