A Quilt, A Pattern, A Mini and a Minier...
I finished "my" Film Strip Quilt. I am really pleased with it.
It's not washed and crinkled yet. That is the best part too me. The picture is a bit yellowy from the morning sun.
I made a few improve blocks for the back and threw in an extra strip I had.
There are even some puckers in there for your viewing pleasure too. Keepin' it real!lol! So I told you in this post about my plan for this pattern. Then I got to thinking about all of the fees for Etsy and Paypal, and that by the time I got the money donated it would not amount to much. So I'm going to post the link to the PDF here and on the side bar and I'm hoping if your led to, that you make a donation to St. Jude or even your local children's hospital. This is so important to me. Thank you.
I have a long list of quilts in progress. I also have 2 custom quilt orders. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, what do i do? Start another project. Oh yeah ,I'm crazy like that. lol.
I pulled out my scraps from this bag I made last year.
I made a mug rug with some of them.
While I was at it I used some scraps of Batik I had left from making my friend a table runner last year. I had the chance to see the runner recently and loved it! I have to work with Batiks more. I also have to get a picture of that table runner.
I machine bound these, which I had not done in quite a while. It looked pretty good. I found that I definitely like sewing the binding to the back of the quilt and folding it over to the front and then top stitching it down. Still think my hand binding looks better.
What is your preferred method of binding?
