Beautiful Binding!


Posted on December 6th, by Amy in work in progress. 11 comments

Friday I got word that a precious and much anticipated new baby arrived!  This is the baby that I have been working on a commission quilt for.  To complete the top, I just needed to know her birthday…I embroidered her name and birth date in one corner.

Saturday, I found the right thread, and basted the layers.

Sunday I quilted, and attached the binding.

Now to get the binding tacked down, and ship it off!  This one will be hard to part with, I love the colors and the teeny bits of patchwork.  I’ll share a picture of the entire quilt, once I have finished it up and washed it.  (Tomorrow!)

    I do love the final step of attaching the binding. It can be so excited because you are relaxing and feeling the fruits of your labor.
