Quilting in Progress
I have almost competed the quilting on the
and hope to be sewing on the binding later today!
In the photo above I have completed all the straight line grid and in the ditch stitching that I did in the center of the quilt and I am onto the border.
To do this on my home machine, I remove all the safety pins that I had around the edge and I replace them with regular pins. I pull the top and backing nice a flat and pin all around the outside edge of the quilt and then I run a line of stitching 1/4" from the edge of the top, removing the pins as I go.
I like to stich around the edge of the quilt when I am get to the border as I feel this holds the backing smooth and in place and it helps to make the quilting lines in the border pop.
More pictures later!
May you have a happy quilty day!
