When you make a quilt - there's still a lot to do even when the quilting is finished. I have been working on this large quilt for the last 87 days. Today is the day that the binding is finally sewn down by hand, and I start on the sleeve.
Again this is a hand sewn project, which takes some time (and motivation).
Then there will also be a label to note the title and the maker of the quilt--me. So I'll start pinning this tube to the back of my redwood scene and hand stitch the top and bottom through the backing and catch a bit of batting, but not go through to the front of the quilt. Then we can hang it and photograph for show entry and historical purposes. YES, we're almost there.
