The quilting is finished! The quilting is finished!
Straight lines for the win!
With some moderate changes of direction in the cornerstones.
And just plain lines for the borders, spaced 1" apart. (I marked one with chalk pencil. Then I got smarter and got some painter's tape. Much easier, faster, and straighter!)
Round and round I went.
I found the most glorious perfect print possible to use for the binding.
It echoes the blues in the body of the quilt and the cornerstones, and pulls blue out to the edge. I love it!
Now I'm trudging along with the hand stitching part of the festivities, which I always enjoy. Binding is peaceful work!
Next photo will be the finished quilt.
Back to my stitching!
