This is my first finished quilt for 2019. I had been waiting to get out and buy the binding and I finally went shopping last Friday. I was sure I would find what I wanted at the quilt shop but I didn't. I bought something anyway but by the time I got to my car I was having second thoughts. I stopped at Joann's on the way home and found something but by the time I got home I wondered if I might have something better in my stash, and I did. I didn't consider it before I shopped because I had something specific in mind.
This is a closeup of the binding on the front of the quilt. I had stitched it on the font and turned it to the back and fused it down and then stitched by machine in the ditch on the front.
This is a corner on the back. The binding is a little wider in some spots, probably because my seam allowance was a bit narrower in places. However, it is all stitched down and it isn't going anywhere.
I shot the photo below from the side to show up the quilting a little better. The color in this one is a little more true; it really isa little more turquoise .
Now I need to give some serious thought to what I can do to make my space more user friendly. I am not ready yet to give up on quilting but I find myself doing less and less.
