This past weekend I showed my cousin how to do machine binding and used this quilt as demonstration. I started it last year as part of a quilt along. I got the top done, but never went any further.
I’ve seen a few quilts with black/white binding so I thought I’d give it a shot on this quilt. It looks fab!
I had a few crosses left over (actually I found one more after I’d already made the back) so I put them in a scrappy backing.
Some of the backing fabric is a DS Quilts print and the pink is a cheap Joann’s fabric that I got a loooooooooooooong time ago when it was on clearance. It has glitter in it. This quilt truly is a WIP!
I used my quilting bar to try to quilt straight lines. For some reason, though, the quilting bar seems to go on the right which dictates that the quilt has to be squished under the arm instead flowing of out the side. I tried to use the quilt bar backwards, but that wasn’t as successful as I hoped. The binding is a black/white floral print from Bernatex.
This cute little fox fabric is my favorite block. The finished quilt measures 44 x 70. The background fabric is Kona ash.
Now, here is the quilt my cousin made!!!
I am a bit jealous of how fantastic her quilt turned out. Look at her first time ever FMQ!
I am linking this up to WIP Wednesday. Have a great Wednesday!
