* Choosing Binding – Finishing Makes The Quilt *

February 21st, 2015 at 10:17 am

Selecting the right binding and finishing technique for your quilt is important. Whether you are making for yourself, as a gift or entering is competitions, how the quilt is finished plays big in first impressions.

Carol's Cats

This little quilt was made by Carol Williams and machine quilted by Kathy Conway. A Challenge at Quilt Til You Wilt, in Odessa, WA, several years ago, had Carol receiving my bag of scraps to create a quilt top and she made cats, knowing I like them. I asked Kathy to quilt before it is finished, including it in my experiment of embellishing after quilting. Kathy did a beautiful job.

Now the kitties will get faces and whiskers, and some coin ruched and gathered blossoms to lounge among.

Your part in this project is to select a finishing option. A. scrappy binding, as on the left side in the photo. B. brown stripe that matches the skinny border, as on the right. C. the pink border fabric. D. since I have not trimmed the quilt, I could add another narrow border of the brown strip and finish with the scrappy binding.

Please vote for your selection, or make other finishing suggestions in the comments below.

    One thing I would really like to reply to is that weightloss routine fast can be performed by the appropriate diet and exercise. Your size not only affects the look, but also the actual quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, as well as physical skills are afflicted in putting on weight. It is possible to make everything right and at the same time having a gain. If this happens, a condition may be the culprit. While too much food instead of enough workout are usually responsible, common medical ailments and traditionally used prescriptions might greatly help to increase size. I am grateful for your post here.

    Together with every little thing which appears to be developing within this specific subject matter, your points of view are actually very radical. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to everybody that your commentary are not completely rationalized and in simple fact you are generally yourself not really totally confident of your point. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.
