First Finish

I have showed the top of this quilt before, but I finally FINISHED it. I have been afraid for so long to do the binding of the quilt, that it just sat around waiting. I had to finish this quilt before my daughters wedding in August, and I knew it, but I was afraid I couldn't manage a binding. I found the directions I saw online very confusing. Even when I thought that I could understand them, I just couldn't muster up the nerve to jump in there and DO it.
Thank goodness for reading the wonderful posts by bloggers in quilty blogland! I had this looming pressure sitting on my shoulders, when a wonderful post was done by I Candy Handmade she had such clear pictures, and step by step pictures and directions. And the part that I completely dreaded... the joining of the two ends of the binding was made SO simple.. I just knew that I could do it. I was up my stairs in minutes, and cutting my bias binding. It was stitched on in minutes, and I had a complete quilt in just days. I am so beholden to her! And my daughter will now have her wedding gift one less stress for momma!!


  1. Congratulations on your first finish!!! It is beautiful! Your daughter will cherish it for years to come.

  2. Congratulations, Marcia, it's beautiful! You did a great job on the binding, and I'm sure your daughter is going to treasure it. Funny thing...when I made my first quilt, the binding was the only thing that I WASN'T afraid of doing....the piecing scared me silly! LOL!

    Since you have checked this off your list, hope you have a nice relaxed weekend!
