String Quilt Binding


My String quilt is back from Eleni's, who again did a beautiful quilting!


It's now time to prepare it for binding. As I have added a neutral beige sashing, I thought that a busy binding, recalling a fabric I used in several blocks, would be fine.


I trim the sides.


The binding is done and I will sew it as explained in MY TUTORIAL.


For the back of the quilt, as usual, I will hand sew the binding, as explained in my other TUTORIAL .


Listening to music, I relax and I sew, really enjoying this phase of the whole quilting.


Almost finished!


I think I like it!

Enjoy your Sunday stitches!
