My Island Batik Magnificent Mini is complete! Today I'm going to share with you how I did that crazy curvy binding!
Here's the quilt before I started the binding. I used Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting and Aurifil Thread for the quilting.
Here's the back!
The next step was trimming the curvy line marked on the front. Then it was time to attach the binding. I decided to use bias binding since it bends and flexes and I was going to use a single fold binding, but my friend Sarah Ann Smith suggested using a double fold so I tried it. This binding is only 1/8 inch thick since it's a mini so I cut it at 1.5 inches wide on the bias. I then attached it very slowly and very carefully. It was NOT easy, but it turned out well. You could only take a few stitches before having to stop and turn the binding.
Then came the mini binding clips. I LOVE these!
After hand stitching the back here is the finished quilt! I am in LOVE with it. It's so classical and dainty finishing at just 14 inches.
I hope you get to quilt today!
