August goal achieved
Here we go again. This time I'm catching up with deadline for August ALYoF. My goal was to finish this Ballerinas quilt and I made it!
You could see me hand quilting it. Machine quilting is fairly simple since the thick batting is PITA. Just a few straight lines across the quilt to keep the layers together.
Once again I used polar fleece for the back. As you can see I sewed the binding on prior trimming. It prevents the polar fleece edges from stretching and you end up with no puckers. Yay!
I wanted some pink binding but I didn't have enough so there were few other alternatives in game but my girl picked this green with pink dots. Honestly I just wanted to finish it so if it works for her, works for me too.
The binding is machine stitched. Do you also count the corners while sewing?
It is like one, we just began.
Two, you half way through.
Three, keep going and breath! At that point I'm getting really excited about being almost done.
Four, here we go! Almost there, few more stitches and DONE! Yippee!
That is obviously good news. The bad weather helped since it kept us inside but on the other hand I'm not able to take proper outdoor pics. So that's it for today. I'll talk more about the quilt within few days so stay tuned if you interested. It'll be my project for Craft Book Month.
