I've been binding my little heart away this weekend.
All of the applique was fast. I used a few different methods. There's a little hand applique and a little machine applique (using Heat n' Bond and a couple different stitches). Heather's directions make it easy and fast!
This is my backing. Do you see the little knots on there? You don't notice them from the front but they are all over the back. This happened another time that this quilter quilted something for me. Last time she said she wouldn't charge me, but when I went to pick it up I told her it wasn't that noticeable so I paid her full price. I probably shouldn't have done that, but I did. So when it happened this time, I called her and talked with her about it. She will be giving me some credit on my next quilt (or doing it for free?) so that will be nice. Not sure what happened here, but it is kind of a bummer. I get so frustrated sometimes, because it seems like there is always something wrong with the quilts that I get back. Not sure if I expect too much (?) or what... Anyways. I love it from the front and she really did do a great job - she free handed all of the quilting. She did tight quilting and the design was beautiful. She said she checked to see if it looked o.k. on the back and just didn't notice the knots.
