One Done, Another Ready


I finished sewing down the binding on Basket Case today! I used leftover 2.5 inch strips for the binding. I like that the binding is made up of different fabrics. It adds a little interest to the edge. I also like that I was able to use up a few more strips from the jelly roll. I have the label all ready. I'll wash it after I've sewn it on. 
 

My Dresden Plate is finally ready to get quilted! My daughter helped me spray baste the layers together. It's so much faster when you have a helper!



Here's the backing. I actually bought this fabric for another quilt but I didn't buy enough.  It's the perfect amount to back this quilt.  I tried very hard to match the pattern when I pieced it together. You can see it if you look close enough but I like the results. 

I just have to decide how to quilt it. Hope that doesn't take too long!!

  2. Hi Rosemary! I followed you over from Twitter. You have a wonderful blog, so I joined it! That Basket Case quilt is amazing - I love how the strips look woven! Your Dresden plates quilt looks great - especially with the border you made! I would never have guessed that you pieced the backing!

  4. What wonderful depth you achieved with the quilting on your Woven quilt!
    I like the modern take on the Dresden plates by pairing them with the striped border.

    1. Thanks, Em! I'm supposed to make the border scalloped. We'll see if I have the courage to try it!
