Quilting - part 3 - stitching the binding
So, this is what I was doing last night. It's so relaxing to be handstitching the binding, which, with the size of the quilt, is around 16 feet. Still some way to go, but at this time of year a warm quilt on your lap, and a wood stove, and it's bliss.
I've chosen to use a floral bias binding that I've had for a long time. It just seemed perfectly matched for the floral fabrics.
Thanks for all your comments - this one's nearly done, and I'll post a final, finished, picture!
