I learned to do my quilting first, then finish the outside edges of my quilt with binding. Today, as I was struggling to decide on how to quilt this, I went into my books. There were pictures of how to machine quilt and in all the photos the quilt was finished, binding and all. Have I been diong it wrong all this time???
By the way, I was looking for information on how far apart quilting lines need to be. I have quilted along the dark in a ropey pattern and followed the dark line as it snakes along the quilt, but don't have anything crossing these lines. Do I need them? Ideas? I plan to stitch-in-the-ditch around the pattern and both sides of the sawtooth.
Hmm, I guess there are two questions here, but I'm going to leave it like this.
