As much as I hate hand stitching, I really love seing how a quilt looks once you blind stitch that binding on. You can imagine how it looks, but seeing it come together at the end is kind of magical. I finished a quilt for my friend’s baby this weekend. She picked the fabrics, as she’s also a quilty/crafty type, and I did the quilting. I finished the top a while back, but just got it quilted and bound this last week.
The pattern is the Moda Bake Shop Baby Lattice Quilt. I quilted it with straight lines 1/4″ to each side of the lattice border.
I like how the quilt lines can be seen on the back, forming their own lattice pattern.
I love a striped bias binding, the barber pole effect is so easy and yet looks really fancy to me.
I got to see the wee one sleeping on her quilt at our house this weekend. There is truly nothing better than making something that you know will be well-loved.
