Finished off with piping







I've finished off my Drop quilt recently and I thought I'd share a few pictures with you before I put the label on and find a home for it.






After making this quilt over the summer, I started looking for the next quilt that needed piping and Drop was the one.

I used Fig Tree Tapestry mini-charms and an older Fig Tree fabric from the line Cornucopia for the border, binding and backing.

I don't know why I had so much of this dot fabric, but it was perfect for this project!  






The quilting on Drop was simple stitching in the ditch with invisible monofilament thread.

I thought piping that matched the border would be a great way to add some pizzaz to this little quilt.

Reading Susan Cleveland's book, Piping Hot Binding, made it easy for me to figure out how the process of piping works. You can check out a few pictures in this post.





It was easy and fun and now I'm on the lookout again for another quilt that needs piping!

The piping looks great on that quilt. I need to think of that when I border some small quilts.
