    This is a lap quilt made for the boy who is one of my relatives who lives in Okinawa.
    The stitch in a ditch by macine ended up with stitch BY the ditch, but turned out pretty decent done for the first attempt finishing all by machine.
    I hope he would love this fish prints that my fabric angel on this board had sent me.
    By the way how can I call the orange tape shown slightly from the bindings in English???

    Wonderful Job Panda. I love the cat too. He looks like he would be a perfect playmate for my Evil kitty. Maybe I will pop him into the next box I ship to you.

    Really cute, Panda!
    Love the kitty too!
    Don't believe Kwhite when she says the kitty is evil. She loves him, she just doesn't want to admit it.

    Now, orange tape? Not sure what you mean...got a picture?

    Great job, Panda!!! Your kitty sure seems to love it! :D

    The orange tape - are you meaning the narrow border you have, right before your black binding?

    Great job! Your quilt is beautiful, and I'm sure the little boy will love it. Your kitty certainly does! I think the orange you're talking about is just a very thin border.

    Oh you did a great job Panda. There isn't one bad part of this quilt. The colors and design are really prefect. I think it will be a big hit. Nice job on trying something new. You did it!

    Great job! I also love your kitty.

    I don't really know what you would call that orange band. It's kind of hard to tell on my monitor. Is it "piping"? Piping is a tube of fabric sewn into a seam that has a string inside it to give definition. It is commonly used in upholstery.

    Love your quilt!!! Kitty approves too!!! :D :D :D
    If that is double folded fabric, that was sewn in with the border, then it is called a flange :wink:

    Kwhite....be nice with my grandkitty!!! :shock:

    What a wonderful quilt for a special young man! You did a very nice job with everything. Is that orange possibly done with chenille? It sure adds a nice touch to the quilt.

    Good job Yumi! I like the flange, it sure adds a pop to it. I just finished my first machine quilting too. As soon as I get a binding on it I will post pics.

    Panda - what a cute quilt with the winking kitty. Looks you have been machine quilting of a while. I believe the orange tape is called a flap unless it has a cord inside then it is piping.

    Great job!!!!! :D

    Well, that kitty is sure fetching! The paw is pointing to a flange, if it is a folded piece of fabric with nothing inside. It is piping if it has a cord inside. It is a beautiful quilt!
    Even we here in the US have different names for things in different areas of the country. If that skinny orange thing is dimensional, that is if you can stand it up and it is only sewn on one side, then most would call it a flange. :lol:

    Panda - your quilt is going to be a big hit with the young boy. The kitty sure likes it. :) The orange between the quilt body and the binding would be a narrow border (I think that is what you are asking). Unless it sticks out from the quilt, then it would be called piping or a cookie crumb catcher :) Very pretty, love the fish!
