Last night I put the final stitches in the binding. I will be able to completely remove this one off my sewing work surface and make progress towards finish on something else, yay!
I started by making my own label from twill tape.
I then used my folded corners ruler for my scrappy binding. I decided NOT to use bias as the majority of the edges on this quilt were bias. All those funny angles, this was quite a challenge for winging it. But it all came together and worked out.
Sorry for the glare!
I had fun quilting this one. It was so full of angles, the stitching came easy from the sewing machine. And to make it look like it had movement I did lots of loop-de-loops as well as C swirls and random asters and stars in the star. A star comet moving through the atmosphere, with gases burning off in a swirly trail.
And I chose a more traditional backing for night time, but less traditional for a baby quilt. It all came together, and here you see the label affixed as well. Spring has sprung at my house, just look at those weeds!
I hope the parents to be will like it. I will make the delivery tomorrow. What are your thoughts?
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog!
