Before we left, I sewed the binding to the front of my quilt.
In the car, I hand stitched the binding to the back of the quilt. This was my first time to do it by hand.
I had to take pictures of my quilt on the river walk!
You can see better pictures of the quilting on her blog here: http://doraquilts.blogspot.com/2015/07/missys-drunkards-path-whole-quilt.html
Be sure to check out the great job she did!
I used a vintage sheet for the backing, I love to do that because it adds character and is cheaper then buying yardage! The binding was not done in this picture as you can tell by all of the clips!
here. I finished piecing the top together (with borders) at a quilt retreat in TX right before I moved a couple of years ago. I am so glad it is finished! This was my second quilt to get bound this month!
I have a lot more pictures to show you from trip! Stay tuned for some great vintage quilts!
