    Finished this Baby Quilt and Pieced the Binding!

    I spent Saturday quilting this and finished the binding at about midnight. This is the first time I've tried piecing the binding, but I have to say I love the effect... especially against white.

    BTW, I made this with the leftover triangles from cutting a tube quilt.

    Thanks for looking!

    That is so pretty, and the pieced binding adds interest.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I like your pieced binding too. Fits your cute little quilt too a T. I love that White on White fabric you used as well.
