    Here is the first ever applique that I have done and it is on its way to canada. Binding sucks, but it is only my 3rd to do. Got to learn the tricks to binding.

    That's really cute! I think your binding looks fine. There are some helpful tutorials out there you might want to check out. I like this one myself. I don't do the whole thing the way she does, but I do follow her tips for assembling the strips together, the corners and ending the binding. Here's the link: http://sharonschambernetwork.com/fre...gel/index.html

    You did great. I'm an animal freak so have to ask where you got the pattern. The doggie is my favorite. :thumbup:

    How adorable is that applique?!! So cute! Your binding looks great. There are tons of tutorials for different binding techniques and it really just takes practice once you find your preferred way. Look how well you did on the applique. Binding is easy compared to that! Make more, okay?

    The applique was easy, the binding is had. I am getting the front ok, but when I machine sew the binding closed it looks bad. I am now trying the stitch and ditch method, looking at getting a zip tool. I know it just takes practice.

    Oh, that is such a fun quilt. I would never have chosen the green border but I really like it.

    Thanks for the smile.
