I ♥ getting a quilt back from the quilter. I can see the finish line on the horizon. Just a quick binding and then I'm finished! It's such an exciting feeling!
This is my "Sweet" quilt.
The fabric line = Sweet by Urban Chicks for Moda The pattern = Shortnin' Bread by Fresh Cut Quilts.
[Fresh Cut Quilts is doing a giveaway right now so be sure to check out Kari's blog and give her some comment love! She is a fabulous Utah designer. I love this pattern ~ it's perfect for charm packs and so cute!!]
I know this fabric is kind of past it's prime, but I still love it. My problelm is that I whip out the quilt tops and then I get stuck because I hate forking over the big bucks to buy the batting, backing and get them quilted. I usually have at least 4 or 5 quilt tops waiting to be quilted. This one has been sitting in my quilt cabinet for many months.
Well, I'm trying to be better. It's my new goal ~ trying to see projects all the way through to the finish before starting a new one.
I will be posting a binding tutorial next; including instructions & photos on how to cut fabric [FAST] on the bias and how to do mitered corners on a quilt. Basically, the whole sha-bang. Doing a great binding is an important thing to know if you ♥ quilting. Don't let it scare you, it's really quite easy.
