Until I finally put the boarders on and created the back last summer. Then I loaded it up along with
a ton a few other UFOs and off to Retreat we went. I pinned and quilted it at Retreat.
Since I so wisely left my binding fabric at home I finished that this week.
I am a bit of a binding purist, I love to sit and sew on the binding by hand. However, at Retreat I watched as a binding was attached by machine using 1/4 inch Steam a Seam. I wanted this baby done so I gave that a go.
I learned a few things with the process but am pleased with the final result.
Quilting: stitch in the ditch using Aurifil thread
Binding: Kona cotton Sour Apple- machine attached
Fabric: Flutterby by Tula Pink- 2 charm packs
And the Three Year Quilt is done.....check.
