There's nothing nicer than seeing one of your patterns made up.
Sandra showed me her beautiful punch needle pieces at Mamre House and I couldn't resist taking a picture to show you. I love the way she mixed a little pink with the red. They're currently displayed at Ingrid's shop, Pioneer Patchwork, Narellan if you'd like a closer peek.
Jan is always full of great ideas and tips and this is another one. Sometimes binding can look a little 'empty'. To avoid this cut your binding 2 1/4 inches wide and trim the backing and batting 1/4 inch wider than the top.
The result. Nice plump (full) binding.
Today is the last day for entering the pattern giveaway (see last post). It's easy to enter, simply post a comment.
Great to show us the way your quilt was binded. Pictures are very clear. Something to remember for my next quilt!
Have a very nice week end ^^)
