Last week I had some time to sew bindings on two quilts that were returned to me in June. They were both machine quilted by Sherryl Tobias, Nappanee, Ind.
Normally when I sew bindings, I sew the binding on the front, turn to the back and hand sew it to the backing. Not this time. I sewed the bindings on the back, turn to the front and machine stitched them in place. Wow, what a time saver!
The first quilt is a kit I purchased several years ago, “Let it Snow” designed by Edyta Sitar, Laundry Basket Quilts. I pieced the top at my guild retreat in February.
The backing fabric of the “Let it Snow” quilt is black. I don’t know why it looks gray. I guess it’s just one of life’s mysteries.
The Zippy Strippey quilt I pieced at the Dear Jane Retreat in April. I think I’ll make another one some day.
And the view of the quilting on the back of the quilt.
Two finishes, what a great feeling of accomplishment.
