I finished the hand quilting on this yesterday.
I added the binding today . I used 2.5″ strips of matching fabric, machine stitched to the top, folded to the back and hand stitched.
I have read about many different ways that people deal with all the length of the binding strips. Some people roll the binding on a tube or spool, they even sell gadgets to keep it together. I don’t understand the problem myself. I throw the binding on the floor to the right side of my chair and the quilt is on the left and I have never had any problem with it twisting or tangling.
Here it is with the binding sewn on before turning it under and stitching.
While I stitch I often feel as if I am being watched.
I washed the quilt in the machine on the delicate cycle and dried it in the dryer……all the marking washed out fine.
Finished size is 79″ square.
