binding aunt jeanie’s quilt

quilt binding choices

Time to pick a binding for the Aunt Jeanie quilt! I’m determined to use fabric I already have; partly because I’ve been being a hermit this summer and don’t want to go to the store, and partly because I really don’t need any more fabric.

So I’m debating… red with polka dots?

Or navy with tiny polka dots?

Because, by the way… I’m done with the quilting!

I just snapped on my walking foot and stitched a quarter-inch from each horizontal seam with white thread. Normal thread, too, no fancy “machine quilting thread”, because that doesn’t seem terribly necessary to me. I love the way these one-way lines look on the back, especially since they run perpendicular to the red stripes.

Almost done!
