i tried it...and i think i liked it.

quilting and binding that is.
This is the mini-quilt from my last quilt making adventure.
My big quilt JUST went out...due to some issues with the original quilter.
I found a NEW QUILTER.
And should have my quilt back in two short weeks.
But for this one...I thought that I should at least TRY to quilt it...and bind it.
And thanks to spray adhesive...I can almost say that it was....easy.
Especially the binding.
I will be binding my big quilt when it comes back.
I did a simple quilting job...using the squares as my guide.
These photos are from post wash...hence the crinkly look.
And...it is already headed to the home of one of my super sweet customers.
I hope it warms your lap for always. :)

And I have started on my next one...a baby quilt for my cousin in laws cute baby...

And my sewing conquest today?

Ruffle bum bloomers.
Stay tuned.

this quilt looks great crystal!! can you "review" the new quilters when your big quilt comes back??
can't wait to see the bloomers...isn't it funny how many "girlie" things you find yourself making when all you have in the house is boys!! I'm right there with ya!! have a great productive day!

What did you put between the front and back of the quilt? In other words - the middle?

Would you mind emailing me to tell me? I'm dying to make my own as well....
