B & W
This is a little quilt that I recently finished. It was a project that I was kinda doing with my mom.
She has one that is exactly the same, just a little bit bigger and a slightly different boarder.
Here is a close up of the quilting.
This quilt is a lap quilt size which means to me that it is perfect for watching TV (which I don't do much of) and snuggling on the chair with Cole in the mornings while we wait for him to go out to the bus.
Here is a view of what the back looks like. I just sewed a white strip down the middle of the quilt to break things up. Kinda unpredictable, like I tend to be sometimes.
I also did the entire binding on the sewing machine on this quilt so I could practice before I did it on something big.
It's not perfect, but I get better each time I do it.
I didn't like the way it looked at first, but after it's washed and dried and shrinks up a bit, it looks pretty good.
Plus, it saves so much time. Hand sewing the binding takes forever. at least for me.
I don't know that I will do machine binding every time, but at least now I know that it's an option.
And who is really looking at the binding on the backside anyway?
More to come...Summer's finished quilt and Sierra's beginnings of a quilt.
