Sneak peek

I finished my very special quilt tonight! I’ll just give you a few sneak peeks in case the recipient happens to see this blog.

I decided to sew diagonal lines across the squares instead of vertical lines like on my last quilt, or all-over quilting. I haven’t tried the all-over style yet- I’m intimidated by it, don’t know how that would work with my Singer Seventy, and also wonder if it takes forever? I need to maximize my craft time, so I go for simple/efficient when I need to. 

Here I was about to start pinning the binding.  
  

And here it’s all finished. If you look closely you can see that I didn’t bind by hand.  Honestly, I want my quilts to be used and loved, and I want them to last. I figure binding by machine is more durable, even if it isn’t as pretty as by hand. 

So that’s done, and with time to spare before it gets given away. It’s a relief to have it done, and I’m happy with it. 

Now for some movie knitting! Good night!
