    Default Binding Tool Star Quilt Is Finished

    I finished quilting the Binding Star Tool Quilt yesterday & finished the binding today. It still needs a label. I did straight line quilting with the walking foot to feature the star pattern. It took quite a long time to mark it; I used the Frixion pen, which worked great. It measures 39" square. Thanks for looking.Click image for larger version.

ID:	107875 I posted a couple close-ups of the binding to show how I do the machine stitching. I sew from the top. I use a sewing gauge to keep the folded over binding on the back at 14 cm. This way the stitching evenly catches (usually!) the binding on the back & makes a nice looking finish. I think machine stitching holds up better than hand hemming for baby quilts which will get washed frequently. Thanks for looking.

    That is really lovely. I've recently become a big fan of straight line quilting.
