    Chunk quilt #2 (aka Tummy Time quilt)

    I love making these. It's just scraps from other projects. Where esle can a Civil War repro look perfect next to some dogs? This one is for a teacher at work--expecting her first this summer--and she knows it's a girl.

    I tried a machine sewn binding--the 2nd half of the job, but I just don't like how it looks compared to hand sewn, so since I make mostly small stuff, I'll go back to a needle and thread for bindings.

    What a fun quilt! Good idea. I also prefer hand stitching the final border though on large quilts it's very time consuming.

    Darling little quilt. I too prefer the looks of hand sewn bindings. That is how I do all of mine.

    Thanks! I've never seen that method before. Interesting--I love the trim color idea. The part I didn't like on how I did it was the line it left on the back--it wasn't consistent all the way around--narrow areas and wide. Not good enough! I found going slow enough to catch the binding and sewing it over the first seam was tedious. So, I like how this method has one follow the seam--and stitch in the ditch. That has to make things more consistent.

    This is the method I used--and I'm sure if I practiced it'd get better. My corners were terrific! lol

    Surprising how good different fabrics look together in a scrappy quilt. I love it.

    I agree on the binding. I mostly turn my quilts like Eleanor Burns so there is no binding. On family quilts that are more heirloom I still bind or for quilt show quilts. I do 3 quilts a month for our guild baby project and hand sewing binding is so time consuming I started turning the quilts and then sew a double row of stitching around the finished edge.
    I put down the batting, the backing right side up and the top wrong side up. Sew 1/2 in seam all around leaving an opening on the long edge of the quilt. Trim the corners to reduce bulk and turn right side out. I then press and pin for quilting.
