    Star quilt done finished with binding

    I will share with all of you that I hate binding, I prefer using yarn to finish the edges but I thought I ought to use binding on this one. If the binding police were to look at it though - oh my.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Tell me, how do you use yarn to finish the edges of a quilt. I'm really curious.
    God Bless,

    here is a pic of something small I sew the yarn on the back and front, it's easy and I like the look.

    Beautiful quilt. The binding looks good to me.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Love those colors.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love how the yarn looks attached to your item. Please share how you do that. It is quite lovely.

    Absolutely beautiful. I love the varying shades of pinks. Why do you hate binding? I find it a little boring but not hard at all. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    A gorgeous star quilt and beautiful quilting. Fabulous job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Love the colors on that one it is beautiful. I agree that it deserved binding - and I promise no binding police here! Gorgeous quilt!
