After quilting all the areas, I added the binding then sat it in a corner to wait for stitching down. Eventually I lost interest in hand stitching that binding down, until my name came up in the top 10 of the UFO Challenge at Stashbusters.
And so it is finished at 57" by 61". The fabric is very luxurious, even with all the dense quilting. It was quilted with Glide threads on my Artistic Quilter 16 sit-down.
strangely, after several months, I wonder how I did it and could I do it as well again?? I do not know why 2 photos will only save in grayscale, as they show up in color in the original. I tried to correct it, but lost the battle.
I needed a baby quilt to gift for a baby girl soon so I quilted up this top that was shared back in September and has been sitting pin basted on my table for a couple months. This was a kit that I gathered from stash last December. I am a bit behind in my Quilt 4 Kids project - I prepared 20 kits and still have 4 remaining to do.
