A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.

Allietare is done! I finally finished sewing the binding on this quilt, and tried it out on my bed. It fits almost perfectly, and I think will make a great spring/fall quilt. I love the way the borders came out, with the brown tucked in there and then used for the binding. I decided not to do the scalloped border that Bonnie had on hers - partly due to "I don't wanna do that" inertia, and partly because I like a square edge on my bed quilts.
This is the first time I made a full-sized Bonnie Hunter mystery, and I'm really glad I did. I quilted it with the "Tickle Too" pantograph which is light and airy, with a few spirals thrown in. The quilt is busy enough that I thought it did not need any detailed quilting.
