The star-barn-raising-quilt is finished! I added the 2 ¼” double binding strip by machine yesterday,
and finished stitching it to the back of the quilt about an hour and a half ago. I still haven’t made a label for it (those of you who read Jennifer Chiaverini’s Elm Creek Quilts novels – and/or her pattern books – have learned: always document your quilts! – which I’m trying to keep up as best as I can), but I will be doing that as a last finishing touch sometime next week, I think… I still have to come up with a name for it, as well - any good ideas out there in Blogland?
Finishing the binding of the quilt took a bit more time than I thought, so unfortunately my siggie swap blocks are not quite done yet. I managed to piece together the 80 triangles that goes on each side of the cream strip, but that is as far as I got.
Hopefully I’ll be able to take some time by the sewing machine after work in the days to come:-) After all it’s not THAT many seams:-)
