Finished at last! I woke up at 4:30 yesterday morning and knew that this was nature's way of telling me that it was time to get this quilt bound. I love working at my machine early in the morning. It is dark outside, the coffee is hot, the house is quiet and Bozz, the cat, is especially chatty. And then... I watch the sun come up. It's my most favorite time of the day, I think. I had the binding finished before Mr. T. even got up.
I machine quilted these cute little curly tail feathers, not my original design, but one that I found online that another quilter had used for her Chubby Chicks quilt. Sweet!
I am very happy with the way that my piped binding turned out. I have only used this technique on smaller items, never on an actual quilt. All four corners matched up perfectly!
