Yay! I finished sewing the binding onto my quilt today. It is officially finished.
I managed to take it out for quick photo shoot before it went too dark and rainy, so here they are.
There's the usual washing line photo that we all resort to from time to time.
And one across a wooden bench. Some leaves photo bombed the shot, so I'll always know what time of year I finished this quilt!
Back indoors, it's all rolled up ready and waiting for someone to snuggle up under it tonight.
I love the bright navy polka dot against the solid red binding. I was going to use the remaining pieces of jelly roll and make a scrappy binding. I'm so glad I went for the solid red. I think it frames the quilt well.
I echo quilted around the shapes and along the sashings. Not perfectly, more of a whimsical effect. In other words, I'm not patient enough to go slowly and accurately, but I'm happy with it.
