Can you believe it? The back came together in about 20 minutes, and sandwiching the quilt was no problem – after I painstakingly ironed both quilt back and front, and taped the back to the floor. No wrinkles!
Quilting was a quick affair, using a gently curving stitch to create a grid of soft wavy lines. So much easier than quilting straight lines!
I stitched the edge of the quilt before cutting away the excess – I love this method, because you get neat edges for binding.
Binding! Yikes! I have no idea what I’m going to use for binding. Blue? White? Stripes? Hmm, time to audition a few fabrics from my stash…
Below is a shot of the backside of the quilt front before I sandwiched it all together. I love the stained glass effect of the light coming through.
