Two Finishes!

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.

Two finishes, what a great feeling of accomplishment.

  1. Great jobs, both of them. I do still finish by hand for “special” quilts. But it strains my neck mightily, so for all others I do them by machine. I’ve been pretty happy with that method. It’s sturdy and neat.
