I would have had this one done sooner but when I took it to baste with friends I forgot the back. Just a slight problem when trying to baste a quilt. Grrr! A week later I was wiser and made sure I had all the pieces. That basting session went much more smoothly.
I was going to just do straight line quilting but then saw a quilt that was quilted with wood grain quilting. I really liked it, so I gave it a go after watching this tutorial. I enjoyed the process and the effect on my quilt. I will definitely being doing it again.
I finished the quilting last night and got the binding sewn on one way. I chose a solid black binding. I felt it framed things nicely. This morning I got up and finished it up using this method.
Had to hurry. A storm is coming and I wanted to get pictures before it hit. I even thought about taking the picture with the binding just glued in place. But it looked like I had time to sew it down. I would have been really mad at myself if I was wrong and the storm hit without pictures. So lucky me the storm held and here is a finished ‘Not Always Black and White.
