    I'm pleased with how these came out. The first tricky part was figuring out what to quilt in the middle--then how to work the binding around the corners that aren't 90. I'm learning. I'm learning. :roll: I decided to make the backs something so reversible works if desired. I have quilted scarppy things on my end tables and I turn them now and then for a new look.

    I had a pile of tops, now I'm making a pile that just need the bindings sewn on...

    And other suggestions?



    See the quilting?

    The back is the same as the front middle.

    Have you ever tried the kind where you sew them back to back and then turn inside out? You can quilt them afterwards and no binding!!
    I was tempted for sure! But, I like how they look with the binding. It sure does add extra work though... maybe I'll flip a few and see how I like it. They would be less expensive if I flip them. I wonder what folks would like better? :?: :?: :?:

    You could always flip it, then stitch around the edge of it to see how it looks.

    Great idea, Terri!! Don't you think it looks nice with that extra color around the edge though? Sigh... every step takes time.

    Great job Karla. You seem to be mastering the machine quilting part. You did a really good job on these. I prefer the binding myself, even if it is extra work. Besides, if you are planning to sell them...you just ask for more I guess.

    Yes, I think it sets off the colors. I love them!
    Try one with turning it and then stitching to see how you like it.
    Yes, every step takes time. That's why I took a break from doing the Sue's. I was starting to get burned out. OR...it could have been from ripping out the pink one and redoing it. lol

    Very, very nice Karla,
    I'm thinking that I'm very slow or you're mass producing. You are just trucking right along with beautiful thiings. I like everything you do, including your quilting. Wow!

    You know, there is a submarine somewhere in OK. Forget where it is. lol

    I do need to try to make a table runner. Never thought of making one, but maybe I'll try one after I finish the Sue quilts.
