I picked my quilt up from the shop yesterday after she had done the long arm quilting on it. Oh, it looks so pretty!!
When I begin to bind, I leave a tail of about 4 inches, and when I finish, I leave another tail of about 6 inches. I use the no bulk method to finish off the binding, which leaves no piece overlapping another, and it gives you the perfect fit. If any of you would like to see a tutorial on this method, I will do one on the next quilt for you. I promise you, once you know how to do it this way, you will never do it any other way again! Once finished with the machine sewing of binding to the front side, I press it out to the back, and then using clips, I fold the binding over and press well before I begin to hand sew binding down. I began to hand sew the binding last night, and finished it this morning. I took a few photos before I took the quilt in to the quilt shop, where it will reside on the wall until the Vintage Picnic line of fabric is sold out. My photos all turned out very over exposed.
I am going to keep this post short. Lots to do here. I hope everyone is enjoying this Spring weather we are having. I loved the rain! The skies are so fresh and blue today!!!
