So this is what I do at 4:30 a.m.--the blues just keep on going, lol!
This time I actually eye-balled the quilting lines. No
The last of the blue squares.
And to switch things up a little I did a single fold 3/8" binding rather than a double. I attached the binding strip to the quilt's edges and then trimmed the seam allowance. Would you believe I actually slit the fold at one of the corners by mistake?? That was a real surprise! But I was able to repair it without removing and inserting a new piece :) Whew!
Another fat quarter came in handy for the back.
I added a little "thread flower" to fill in the empty space on the label :)
The first two.
Next week I'll show you #3 :)

Oh I like this one as much as #1! I always use a single binding even on my large quilts as I like the fell of a less bulky binding. And, of course I have never cut a corner while trimming off excess fabric - wink! Glad you were able to fix it without removing the whole thing. Can't wait to see #3. You are on a roll!ReplyDelete
That is darling. I've cut a corner once too trying to trim the binding once it was on. That was the last time I did it!ReplyDelete
Oh great job Barbara ! I love both of your quilts !ReplyDelete
Love the twosome and I'm sure the triple play will fit in perfectly. It does feel good to use up a few pieces here and there, although, these little guys don't seem to make the pile any less.ReplyDelete
Two very sweet little finishes. I look forward to seeing #3. Never can resist little quilts in patriotic colors. :)ReplyDelete
Very nice. Good job on the quilting without predrawn lines. The embroidered design is a nice touch to your label.ReplyDelete
they make such a sweet pair of minis. I love that backing B&W.ReplyDelete
