Mountain Trail Finale

Several of you have let me know you are quilting your little quilt or are finished. Woo-Hoo!!
I wanted to tell you about my little boo-boo. I'm sure none of you will make the same mistake, but I'll pass along the info anyway.
You should be able to click and enlarge this photo. When quilting around the outside strip that runs parallel to the binding, don't quilt directly in the middle. I didn't leave room for the binding seam allowance so my quilting is right to the edge.  I'm not quite sure how everything got so cut off, but that's why my blog is called Humble Quilts. That one square has turned into a rectangle! lol
I cut my binding 1 1/4" wide and attached the right side of quilt. I do not do a double binding on the little quilts.
Be sure to add a label with your name and a date! I hope you have had a good time putting this little quilt together.
Next week we'll link up so we can see them all in once place!! Thanks you so much for playing along. It thrills me to no end.

  1. Love the colors! I don't look for boo boo's... The pattern would make a beautiful big quilt!

  2. I've heard the Amish always put a mistake in their quilts on purpose because only God can make perfection. Wonderful Amish quilt tradition, just say you agree with that!!

  3. I'm starting my little quilt today and am hoping to have it nearly finished by week end. I've finished a couple of UFOs, so don't feel bad about starting a new project. Especially this one.

  4. Oh, Lori, I have made that same boo-boo on more than one occasion!
    I should be assembling mine today or tomorrow. Can't wait.

  5. Your quilt is perfect the way it is! Gorgeous! I finished my top yesterday, using 1.5 inch strips. It's big enough that borders aren't necessary, so I'll just bind it in the red. It was fun and rewarding using my scraps, but it didn't make a dent. Can I send an email picture since I am not a blogger yet?

  6. i think that it looks pretty fabulous too~! maybe doll quilts look even better with a bit of "humble" in them . . . at least i think so.
    i too have made the same quilting mistake a time or two. one would think i would remember after having done it once but nope, i occasionally still forget. thanks for the reminder.

    looking forward to the link up next week. i'll have a flimsy by the end of the day (fingers crossed).

  7. I am ready to put on a border now and I am paying attention to how you have quilted it. I am thrilled with the progress so far. No one would have noticed if you hadn't pointed out a mistake and how rude of them if they did. Love it. Thank you.

  10. Love how you bordered just the two sides. The backing fabric is fun! I am so far behind, I know I won't be finished in time, but it will be fun to see all that sewed along:)

  14. This was THE QUICKEST little sweetie. Once it was cut, it flew together in one day while our roof was being replaced. It made a nerve rattling day very fun and I was totally preoccupied with it. LOL, I enjoyed the day! I appreciate your little tutorials and the treasures that come from them. Thanks again.

  18. This is such a cute little quilt. I think I may have to make one of these. I just went back and found all the directions. I have some scraps that will do nicely.

  19. I love that 'eye' fabric you used for the backing...it makes me chuckle. I am working on my quilt and will have it done for next weeks link up. I hope to have a post up by the weekend.

  24. So adorable. I am still going to make this quilt. It will not be for a while. I over extended at work and then my daughter's wedding reception is coming up next month. I am not ready for any of it.
