One momentous thing happened during my blog sabbatical. I finished the Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt I’d been working on for such a long time.
Here are links to a couple of previous posts on this quilt:
Now here are the last pictures I took of the ol’ gal before she left my house. I focused mostly on the showing the edges of the quilt, and the knife edge binding I used. Mercy me, lots of little tiny stitches. Knife edge binding does not include an extra strip of fabric stitched along the edges of the quilt much like every other quilt binding I’d done before. Instead, the top and back edges of the quilt fabric are turned toward each other, covering the batting. Then a whip stitch is used to secure the edge that is created. Get it? Maybe the pictures will help. For the back of the quilt, I used a pink 1930’s reproduction fabric I found at my local quilt shop.
