Let's Get it Together....
Today is the day. New binding material has been purchased and cut. The quilt has been ironed and sized. It is time to get it together.
The quilt's owner requested a different binding than was previously prepared for the quilt. Waiting until the holiday madness had passed, we purchased the solid black cotton fabric needed to frame with quilt with a bold boundary.
Yesterday afternoon the prewashing, ironing and cutting took place..today our goal is to machine stitch the binding to the quilt. The binding will then be ironed and turned to the back for hand stitching in its final place.
This pretty thing is nearly finished...then on to new projects! I better get going....
