Back to the quilt. . . . . .
I cut up the remainder of the jelly roll to make up a stripe for the back of the quilt.
(this was really just to use up the fabric because i knew I wouldn't use the bits left over)
The quilt front was pinned to the fleece, then I marked up the front for quilting.
The air erasable pen is great and does just disappear.
The binding fabric was washed ready for cutting.
Over five metres of binding, ironed ready to go.
I should have known it was all going too well. . . . .
Look at the beautifully neat corner! Can you spot the mistake?
A lot of un-picking followed, as I hadn't left enough fabric to 'turn the corner'. I'm not stupid but when it comes to the corners. . . . well I don't know. . . . something just doesn't work up in the brain department.
So there it is - the front.
I did spot a couple of threads that need tying off whilst I took the photos
I'm still not sure about the colour. . . .
But I did finish it !!
