This week I was determined to fix the problem and get it done! Besides, my sewing room wall is staring blankly at me waiting for this little ditty to get hung up. (If anyone has any tips on the best way to hang a little quilt, I'd greatly appreciate it!)
So here is a quick look back at the before:
I tested out my new (but rather shaky) machine quilting skills on it and, again, am very happy with the results from a distance. It has the quilted, scrunchy look that I was going for. I also tried to do a real binding to finish it off using this method. It was easy enough and looked great, but I had to unpick it twice due to my own miscalculations with the fabric. For my third attempt I have to go out and buy a coordinating piece of fabric just for the binding since I messed up my remaining leftovers. Oh, well. Live and learn!
