Woo Hoo. It’s finally finished. Here is a link to my Second Quarter 2016 finish-along showing this quilt top as one of the four I hope to finish this quarter.
This is the the same quilt top I couldn’t decide what to do with during the first quarter so I put it away. A couple weeks ago, I decided this would be a perfect quilt-top to use as my very first long arm project. I’m so happy with the way it turned out, but unfortunately after it was done I still couldn’t figure out what to do with it, so I put it away again without binding it.
This morning I actually took it out of the cupboard, laid it on the cutting mat and was going to cut it up and make it into throw pillows…or placemats. I just so badly wanted it to be completely finished. Thank goodness inspiration of a sort struck at the very last minute. I would bind it using a “magic” quilt binding technique which would allow me to machine sew both sides, guaranteeing a fast finish. And sometimes, finished is better than perfect.
I’m so glad I waited, hesitated and procrastinated with this one. I like it lots now that its bound, washed and dried and sitting temporarily on the chair in my family room. Check out the magic binding. All things considered I think the corners on this one turned out well.
Did you finish a project today? Let me know, send me a picture if you have one.
