I finally finished my Floating Dresdens quilt!
I really hate binding. I haven't figured out a way to make it look great by machine, and hand binding takes forever. I know some people machine sew the front and hand sew the back, but that doesn't seem easier than hand sewing the whole thing. I have another quilt that's on hold because all that's left is to hand sew the binding and I just hate doing that. I'll do it at my local quilt guild's next sew day.
Anyway, I bound this one with my Singer model 27...
...by flipping the backing fabric over the front, folding it, and sewing it down. Cheating!
Finishing a quilt is a little anticlimactic because after all these months of work it just winds up getting tossed onto the rocking chair in my living room, or stuffed into the basket where we keep our quilts. But over the next weeks I'll see my husband and kids wrap themselves in it, build forts with it, and take it to bed with them to keep them warm all night. That makes the work worth it.
This former UFO is finally done.
