The best Bit about Quilting.

If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you will know that the best bit of making a quilt for me is putting the binding on.
a) Because the quilt is nearly finished, b) The sheer enjoyment of sitting in a comfy chair and hand sewing the binding down.Sheer bliss for me. :0)

I quilted my beautiful Liberty fabric quilt very simply. Just straight lines both ways on my domestic sewing machine, using my duel feed foot (a bit like a walking foot).

I used simple quilting as I wanted to show off the lovely fabric, the wadding/batting used was a high loft as I wanted that puffy look too.
I am so pleased I finally cut into this wonderful fabric. It was a joy to sew and to quilt.
I have been collecting Liberty fabric for over a year, from
Liberty Tana Lawn Bundle of the month club from 
and the lovely Amanda sends 10 fat 1/8 ths every month. and as yet I have never had two fabrics the same.

Binding being stitched down.

You can all guess what I am doing this evening, comfy chair here I come.!

Before that, I must show you this beautiful Quillow that my good friend Liz has made as a gift for a wedding. This is the pillow and the quilt is tucked up inside. I love the glasses on the little boy bear...

Beautiful Quillow Liz, I am sure they will love it..

Keep safe and keep stitching .....................Doti...
