I'm not big on actually totally finishing a quilt. I love to finish the top, I occasionally have some tops basted to quilt myself, or have them long-arm quilted. However, I almost never actually then get the binding on. Strange, I know.
However, feast your eyes on this...
Totally finished, binding and all. My little tablerunner. Done and dusted. Ended up about 40" by 8".
Quilted all by myself
Here is my idea of quilting. To see some inspired, talented quilting on a domestic sewing machine , have a look at my friend Linda's Blog.
Just scroll down a bit to see how she's going machine quitling her own design onto her latest work of textile art.
And here in its final home.
