Album Quilt

Here's the quilt I got back from my quilter, Kat, right before going away for my quilting week.

I had the binding made but wanted to get them sewn by machine before going to Sunriver. I'm sewing away and for some reason something didn't seem right, but I couldn't put my finger on it.....until about 1/2 way through the second binding I realized I was sewing the binding on the back instead of the front. I stopped and had a good laugh at myself, wondering how many bindings I've sewn on. I figured it was too many to call myself a beginner:) I kept sewing and just made sure to hand stitch it down very nicely to the front.

This was a block swap my small group did. We made 2 blocks, signed one and sent them to the other group members.

Kathy did an awesome job quilting this.


  1. Sounds like something I would do! Oh how I love that quilt!

  2. You have a chance for a completely machine-sewed binding. Use invisible thread and a zig-zag stitch.

  3. I really like your new quilt. That's funny about your binding. :-)

  4. Have I ever said I love bubblegum pink quilts? Because I really do! Another beautiful quilt.

  5. Agreed: Kat is an awesome quilter. And it is a GREAT quilt!

  6. Lovely quilt! You have used a wonderful assortment of pinks! What a great block swap.

  7. You have so many gorgeous quilts that you trot out. Love this one. I have done a binding like that deliberately, I think it was to get it right for a border print. I think the quilting on this quilt is wonderful.

  8. Love it. I've always like signature quilts. The quilting she did is beautiful.
