Today is an exciting day. I got my Fashion and Food quilt back from my longarm quilter friend, Peggy Lopez O’Neil. I asked her to do a squared-off stipple similar to the quilting done in Elizabeth Hartman’s Patchwork City book. I think Peggy did a great job. See the close-up of the glasses block below.
I’m going to use the orange fabric I have pinned next to the quilt for my binding. I’m thinking of trying Sunday Morning Quilts’ Binding Method 2 by authors, Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts and Cheryl Arkison of Naptime Quilters where binding strips are cut to the appropriate length for each side plus two inches of overhang at each corner. I’m wondering who has tried this method of binding, and how did it work for you?
Linking up to Freshly Pieced: WIP Wednesday.
The quilting looks great with your top. It’s such a fun combination of fabrics and a great theme.
Wow! Mary, what a beauty! I can’t wait to see the mystery back and see the face of the recipient!
Fashion and food , a great combination . I would be better at the fashion though if I didn’t enjoy so much food
This is a fun quilt. I love the glasses fabric and the quilting is wonderful indeed.
