The binding is finished and photos were taken out on the roof garden this afternoon. I am thrilled with how it turned out. 672 pieces in the top that all went together so easily thanks to the Inklingo Orange Peel Deluxe collection printing the stitching lines and matching points on the fabric. I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to post these photos!
The final touch was a totally lump-free binding thanks to this tutorial I found on Bonnie Hunter’s website. I’ve tried doing lump-free binding many times with instructions from books and various sites, with varying degrees of success. The tutorial on Bonnie’s website made it absolutely foolproof for me.
Now I can’t wait for August 1st when the quilt will be given to my aunt on her 90th birthday. All that’s left now is the label, which will be added this weekend.
To see more finishes, go to Lit and Laundry and the post here with links to Friday finishes.
