Tone it Down Finished!


The binding is done! Due to the size of this quilt, the binding took a little longer than expected for me to sew it down. I was in no hurry. The quilt kept me warm while I watched television! My cats enjoyed sleeping in it too. It's nice to have it done but I will miss it!


I really love the look of the binding. I think the polka dots are fun as well and the shade of blue is just perfect. It seems to truly frame the quilt. I had to be careful to leave enough space so the binding would not be sewn over any portions of the feathers. I left 1/2 inch on the sides of the feathers where the binding would be sewn.


Yesterday, I quilted each border 9 patch. I had no idea where to place the flower petals. It was impossible for me to figure out exactly where the binding would end up on each 9 patch. It was much easier to just go back and quilt each area after the binding was complete. So much more accurate!


Here's my last step! I just have to sew the label on. I just basted it and hope it have it all done tonight.
