    Im still trudging along on the binding. I have to say this is my best binding work ever. Im slower on my hand stitching though trying to be very neat and consistent with my stitches. What is it they say... "Slow and Steady wins the race."
    Have an awesome day!

    I'm finished... I have to say WOW... I'm feeling really great about this quilt.

    It was a wonderful learning experience from beginning to end. My corners are still not show quality according to Sharon Schamber's tutorials. But I have to say they are better than any corners I have made before. The stitching all around on my binding is excellent. I don't know that I could have really done any better. I think its my best hand stitching work ever.

    The bottom border panel looks a lil droopy, I believe this was caused because I used a different basting technique (hand basting vs. spray adhesive) then the other borders.

    Things I would do different. I need to pay better attention to how close my quilting design comes to the edge. The binding ended up covering some of the quilting. Also I think I would like to cut my borders 2 inches wider vs. the 1 inch extra that I allowed. Next time I believe I will be able to do a better job and aligning my sashing strips at the cross sections. I'm happy with them though for my first try. I will always use my 1/4" foot now for attaching the sashing. I had it in my head that because of the thickness of all the layers I had to use the walking foot. I know now this is not true.

    The greatest new skill Im taking away from this project is the ladder stitch. I had never heard of it before I watched Sharon Schamber's video's. I am so very pleased with the neatly hidden stitches all around the binding of my project.

    The experiment I did with the binding was using multiple fabrics. I saw a tutorial on You Tube some time ago and I couldnt find it but did what I could from memory. Here are the steps I took.

    Ran across a video from Nancy Ziemen - different basting ideas. shows a good one on using the fusible web to baste. I'll have to try this method.
