I love to Free Motion Quilt! It's one of my favorite parts. Here's the back of my Island Batik Ambassador Magnificent Mini about half way through. Be sure to read all the way through to find out WHY it was finished in the hospital...
The finished quilt.
Look how well the black hides.
I love how the arches in the center make it look like a snowflake!
Auditioning border ideas...
I decided to go bold and stitch the feathers swags in red.
The finished back! Time to bind.
I've been working with 1/8 inch binding on these minis and I continue to do so. It's a bias binding of course.
I sew it on with my trusty Bernina zipper foot. It works amazingly well for small seam allowances and as a bonus I can use my even feed system on the foot! Perfect.
All sewn on and ready to hand stitch.
Binding clips are amazing.
The binding's done. BUT there's a story behind it...
You see I had a very VERY sick child who had to go to Children's Hospital and get fluids. I knew I would need something to keep my hands busy so I took the binding along. Once he was settled and comfortable I was able to calm down too and bind.
I hope you get to quilt today!
