WIP Wednesday

I finished quilting the wedding quilt yesterday.


Today, it is time for binding.


My old faithful Bernina doesn’t like this minky like backing. So I think I’ll be using one of theSinger 301s. I have to work today so I have to get moving if I’m going to get this done!

Have a great day!

Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts,  Quilt Fabtrication

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Oh, Katy! I love the quilting! I can’t wait to see the entire quilt complete with binding.

  2. One of my least favorite tasks is making binding! I like putting it on, especially hand sewing it down on the back. There’s such a nice sense of completion to that process, and I like handwork a lot, anyway; hand piecing is my favorite (not hand quilting, I send everything out to be machine quilted).
    Congratulations on being almost finished, have you made the label? That and photographing the quilt are always my last two steps. Oh, and then washing, which I always do before gifting a quilt. I have two dogs, and I’m not obsessed with house cleaning, so any quilt I make invariably is dusty and doggy by the time it’s finished. I also like the wrinkled look of a washed quilt. If I can say I’ve already washed and dried the quilt once, people are more likely to believe they can really use the quilt and wash it! Some people otherwise think it’s “too nice” to use, and want to put it in a closet!
