The hand stitching part of binding that is…I admired my flower quilting on this HeartStrings quilt tonight while stitching down the binding.
And I also managed to finish my Wonky Trees. I need to remove my markings I made for the trees and letters and then I’ll hang it up on the wall. As I was trimming this last night, I realized that while this isn’t the prettiest quilt I’ve ever made, it was fun.
Hi Mary>>I like the quilting you did on that too!!>>I just LOVE the wonky trees .. it is sooo cute and it does look like it was a lot of fun to make!>>hugs>grace
I love your wonky trees!
I agree with you about the binding. It’s the last chance to hold and admire the quilt as you go around the perimeter, and all the design decisions are done. And I really like the wonky trees too — its fun and lively and interesting. congrats.
I enjoy binding too, it’s a relaxing way to finish a quilt. You did a beautiful job quilting it…is that from the Pajama Quilter DVD?>>I love the Autumn trees quilt too!
Your quilting is beautiful on the blue backing – you did a great job, as always.
Your wonky trees are adorable!!!
And admire you should! I’m with you on the binding…there’s just so much peace to sitting and stitching away, isn’t there!>>I love your Wonky Trees! It will bring some “smile factor” to your days! And maybe a giggle or two? 😉
Oh my, I see a lot of comments of people who actually like doing bindings. Can I get some adresses? I’ll be happy to let someone else do my bindings *lol*! I hate doing them!>I think the wonky trees are very nice, love the words you stitched and the colours are really autumn.
I enjoy doing the binding too – cause I’m so close I can feel it, and there aren’t any decisions left to make, so you can just step back and admire your masterpiece. Except when it comes to big quilts then I get a bit impatient with the binding. Your quilt looks lovely.
Wonky Trees rocks.
great job on both mary! i like them both!>laurie
I absolutely love doing the binding. It can be done while sitting on the sofa with my honey enjoying a DVD or in the car on the way to a great vacation destination. The basting to prep for quilting is the part I absolutely hate. Dread in fact.>>Your quilting as usual is fabulous and tyhe wonky trees are so whimsical and charming.
I just KNEW the little tree quilt would turn out lovely. Good job. It’s so friendly and warm.
I love it! It has to make you smile when you see it.
I think the wonky trees quilt is very charming!
Actually I think it is a lovely combination of colors and wonkiness. Everything goes together just wonderfully!
Not every quilt can be your favorite, but this one is lovely. I think the stitched words are really fun and, as I’ve said before, I just love the trees!
I love to sit & hand stitch my bindings on finished quilts. Maybe it's because I machine piece & machine quilt & that's the one time I get to sit & do some stitching by hand or maybe it's knowing it's completing the quilt. Whatever reason, I enjoy that part. Love your Wonky Trees!
Sound as if you all had fun with your free piecing tree quilts, yours is lovely. I don't love binding but I did find a way to make it more bearable for me,”No Hands Piped Binding”, beautiful finish & no hand sewing!>Roslyn
