Well the black and white quilt is done and the binding looks good. I really like that little touch of red. This fabric goes from orange to brown in some places, but overall looks red. As I have mentioned it is my favorite "solid".
With this quilt behind me I've started a new one and here is the middle section completed. The border will be the black and white that is around each Geisha panel. This will be so much fun to quilt I can't wait to get to that point.
The only thing I do that is traditional when I quilt is the hand sewn back of my binding.
I know several other quilters who do it this way and several who do the whole binding
on the machine. I just love the hand work of sewing on the binding and do this while
watching tv. The stitched area is to the right of the needle. Which method do you use?
The back will be a "solid" in tan and will have one of my
signature wonky blocks in the lower right area.
I have been trying to spend more time drawing and even
got myself a really nice sketch book with hard covers.
That was a splurge but I've wanted one for years.
