In between working on George, buying school supplies, and finishing up some summer fun, I've been quilting the Candy Bar Pinwheels quilt. I was just about to sit down for an evening of hand sewing to attach the binding to the back, when I thought it would be a good time to share a picture or two. Two, because Copper insisted on getting in the picture, which totally took the focus off the quilt!
|Who cares about George or the Pinwheel quilt? Look at me!!|
I really enjoy sewing the binding on the back by hand, but I know many of you prefer to sew it on by machine. I have just never mastered that method and I really enjoy hand sewing to finish off a quilt. I find it very relaxing. Do you attach bindings to the back by hand or by machine? Please leave a comment and let me know. I've been wondering which way is more popular right now.

I thought this picture would show off the quilting a little, but as you can see it didn't turn out that way! I'll try to take another when the quilt is totally done and I'll show the backing too. I love the backing of this quilt. Plenty of stars..... on the backing and the quilting! I like the back to coordinate with the top in some way, but not match exactly. Know what I mean?
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your sewing time!
