Quilting Finished…

I finished all the hand quilting  on the whole cloth quilt.  I am now ready to add the binding and do all the trapunto (see this for trapunto demo: https://timquilts.com/2013/03/26/trapunto-video/)

Here is  what it looks like now (click pictures to enlarge)

I will not do a standard applied binding.  I am using piping.  I hand stitch the piping to the top only following the contour of the design

after that is done I will trim the excess to the edge of the raw edge of the piping (all 3 layers)  then turn the raw edge in fold the backing under and hand sew it to the edge of the piping.  Not ready to do that yet but here is a picture of the top turned so you can get the idea

This is not a fast process because it is all by hand.  I will post some updates soon

Happy Quilting

    I love the piped binding. Is that also put on by hand, or could you do it by machine? I understand why you would need to do the rest by hand.

      I have to put it on by hand….because I only want the stitching to be through the top layer….I cant figure how I would be able to do that on the machine without catching some of the backing or batting…also by hand I can better get my stitches to the edge of the cord in the piping…I can never seem to get close enough with the machine
