These are really cute.
Really cute...love quilting on both of them. I just did my 4th small quilt sewing the binding on by machine in the manner you describe and while I still love the hand sewn best it does get easier and easier with each one. This one I did not use seam ripper once and that was a first! And it is so much faster when time is an issue.
True Thanks- and yeah for not having to get out your seam ripper:)))) some 20+ years ago when I made my first quilts I actually put all my bindings on by machine at first but- from front to back- and they were horrid- could never get them straight and neat looking- putting it on the back- duh- never occurred to me but it is better- and if I do it a few more times as you say- should get better:)
These turned out so cute!
Ohh they look nice - maybe Ineed to get the book and join the sew along ....did you ever try attaching the bindign at the front with a "nice stitch" [Zierstich], you know not try to hide the stiching but use a thread that stands out - I like to use my "3 straights + a spike"-stitch (in the very few cases I do machine binding.
Those mats are very cute! All the ideas I've seen from that book makes me think I better get one! I like your quilting, too. Very nice!
Strandkorbtraum Thanks- sounds like a interesting technique- will definitely have to try it on another of these- I know I'll be making a few more as they go together fairly quickly and make good gifts!
Rebeccajeffsmith Thanks so much and you definitely must join:))))- it's going to be a really fun stitch along!
So very cute!! Can't wait to make this with the sew-a-long with Rebecca . I really like the outline quilting on the second one. Sure to be a hit! I find myself having to edit my exclamation marks so I don't come across as manic, but that's how I am when it comes to cute things(!).
Terryt1955 LOL- I know what you mean- I respond to a project and turn into the smiley face generator!:)!;)!
Yes, really looking forward to the sew along- have you joined yet- great list of projects!
Oh I didn't know it was a real group already. I ordered the book and it came the very next day (gotta love amazon). Thanks for the heads up, I'll go make it official right now.
