These are the final pics of this quilt! I made this binding last Sunday. The quilting is all straight line which I did myself...nothing too exciting but I think it works well with this quilt. Love the built-in even feed foot on my sewing machine. This is the first time I've used it.
Then after machine sewing the binding to the front , I hand stitched the binding to the back while watching Zen on Masterpiece Mystery on PBS on Sunday night! I really enjoy doing the stitching while watching tv- very relaxing for me. I also did some decorative stitching using Perle cotton #8 in the triangles all around the quilt. This was something else new for me! I'm getting adventuresome in my old age(just turned 58!) This is the finished quilt. the back has some left over pieces from the front.
