    I always put my bindings on the back first. Then I roll it over and use a small zig zag to finish it on the front. For a baby quilt that is going to be loved and washed, it is stronger. Plus it takes no time at all.

    The quilt is darling

    Thank you all for the kind words. I posted #2 yesterday before #1 - just because I thought the pics of #1 were still on the camera.

    It's a great quilt. Don't give up. You learn a little something from quilt you make.

    Excellent recovery! Good for you for sticking with it. We learn, (and teach) from our mistakes. Thanks for sharing.

    Adorable quilt, my first big quilts were blue and yellow boat quilts, one each for my two sons. I did a Nova Scotia Bluenose pattern in the middle with a frame, then 4"blocks all around, more rows at the top and bottom to make it longer, more borders and a dark blue binding. I always start the binding at the back so the hand stitches show on the front, especially nice if it's hand quilted.

    Congratulations on "sticking the course". You were not easy on yourself picking that pattern to start out, and just look, you did it. Give yourslef a pat on the back, you deserve it.

    The ones with the most problems are the ones you remember the most and we learn so much from making mistakes!

    So glad you keep going even with the problems...it turned out to be a wonderful quilt that will be treasured. Can hardly wait to see your next venture...it is going to be another great one I am sure.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pattern. Since we are all sailors at my house, this one would fit in everywhere (except for the fact that we do not have any yellow or blue in the house). Who cares?
    It would even be cool to have on board our sailboat. Is there a name for this pattern or did you get creative and make it up.
    Hope that you don't mind, but someday I will copy it and make one also. It is gorgeous!

    GREAT quilt! ;) My grandson loves his sailboat quilt. It was one of my first quilts, too.
