The First One is the Hardest...I Hope!

Besides a few tension issues...I have some tucks in my backing....argh! But this was an experimental design for me...lots of large diagonal areas and I have a midarm...17". I did a lot of advancing the quilt with the needle down. No tucks till the final 12 inches...guess I lost my focus!!! It will be a wall-hanging only quilt so no one sees the "dark side."


It is drying from my water spritzing to get rid of the blue markings...full photo to come soon. One of my favorite parts of quilting is binding...the final lap. Then I will have my first finish of my summer quilting season!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

it looks great - so many hate binding I'm surprise you love it - I never mind it as then I know I am finished. I read one blogger that said she had about 5 quilts waiting for her to bind and they had been waiting for years - I would want to use them already.
