One of my goals for 2020 is to finish several quilts in the "Needs Binding" queue. I recently finished hand-stitching the binding and label on this large blue and white quilt and took it to our camp for some photographs.
I started the quilt in 2017 as part of Diane Knott's Summer Star Sew Along. I chose the blue, white, and cream color scheme as a way to use up some of my huge blue fabric stash.
I finished the top fairly quickly, but didn't get around to the quilting until last year. Fortunately, Diane began long-arm quilting during the quilt's hiatus. It was only appropriate I ask the quilt designer to also do the quilting! She did a wonderful job of quilting in large, soft swirls.
All that remained was to bind the quilt and add a label. I found the blue batik binding fabric in my stash, and luckily there was enough to bind the 94 inch x 94 inch quilt!
Now that the quilt is finished, it will have pride of place in my newly-refurbished guest room. Would you believe I didn't notice the boo-boo in the quilt border until just now as I was reviewing the pictures for this blog entry?!
