Last week I took a refresher class on binding a quilt. When I signed up for the class the owner of the shop sounded shocked. "Don't you know how to put on a binding?" she asked. Of course I do, but it's been so long since I have really done any serious quilting and that was all by hand. I figure that it's a good thing to relearn these skills the way they should be done instead of my typical "fly by the seat of my pants" method. :-)
Last 4th of July was a quiet one for Ken and I. We were supposed to travel down to Pete and Terry's annual party, but if I remember correctly our youngest had given us a reason to stay home, so to console myself I spent the afternoon in the studio working on this little table runner....perfect for the holiday.
....and there in the studio it has been sitting waiting for the final finish.....
This is the first time I have machine stippled a quilt as well. It's not perfect, but I think it turned out pretty well for the newbie that I am...and it was fun! I really enjoy the machine quilting part of the process a lot. There are so many ways to be creative with it.
I was VERY happy with how nice the points came out. I worked hard getting those right on this little quilt, and it paid off.
