    Last night I finished the binding on this quilt! It's been a long time in the making, I believe I finished the top in 2009 (maybe 2010? not sure). It sat around because I wasn't confident that I would be able to do a good job quilting it on my longarm that I've had for a year.

    Now it's into the washer, a slight drying, then lay it out flat to block and shape it. Fingers crossed....

    I have 3 more quilts folded up on my bed that need binding. Those are going to be by machine! This took days and days to do by hand.

    Oh Pam it turned out just lovely! And you have no reason to lack confidence in the LA dept because your quilting looks GREAT. Love those feathers.

    It's not that hard of a pattern to do, just tons of HSTs! Piles and piles of them.

    I have avoided doing diamonds since my first attempt many, many years ago. Maybe someday I will try again using starch. I don't even know if there was rotary cutting when I was doing that diamond quilt. In fact, it just flashed into my mind the memory of using a ruler and drawing the lines for the diamonds. No wonder I hated doing diamonds and trying to get points to come together!

    It's a totally beautiful quilt, you must have gotten a lot of practice on your LA because the quilting is gorgeous. I know what you mean about hand sewing the binding, but I also like this step in the process, I get to bond with my quilt for several days and then ta-da!! it's totally finished.
