part of my problem is sewing black bindings. no matter how bright the light it still feels like a guessing game. I did use a chalk pencil to mark the edges this time and that did help a little.
re feathers - I know. Practice make perfect......
For some reason, even though I put stacks of squares or triangles in front of me, I just can't get the rhythm of grabbing them between the pieces for the project I'm working on. Oh, well. When I need a mindless project, I usually grab my strips. I seem to have enough of those to last forever and, of course, I keep making more.
Can't wait to see a picture of your finished quilt.
That will be perfect for that quilt. I knew it was going to be beautiful when You kept putting more blocks on the design wall. Doen't hurt that I love the colors.
Yes, I sew to the back and fold to the front. Sometimes the back isn't perfect but I"m most concerned that the front looks good. I try to use bobbin thread that blends with the back of the quilt. Rarely do I have a seam in the binding that ends at the corner. I've used your solution. Doesn't take much work or time.
Takes my breath away.
A quilt this lovely will guarantee the couple stays married.
Thank you. When I was buying the fabric for this (I purchased 100% of the fabric new for this quilt from about 6 or 7 quilt shops) I was thinking sea glass and sand.
Thank you. I am pretty pleased with this quilt. I have finished the first of 5 rows of circles so off to a good start.
