My first 2013 Finishes

When I went to post to this blog this week I found it had been so long my name had been removed from the list.  Thankfully Dawn and Wendy let me back in. I will try to post a little more often.  Not that I haven't been sewing I just haven't been finishing much.  I think it's because I don't enjoy the actual quilting part.


Last week I finished applying the binding to two of my UFO quilts.  Both of these quilts were made in 2005 as a BOM at Little Quilts in Atlanta - or as Little Quilts calls it their Second Saturday Sampler.


Both quilts were quilted with the baptist fan using the Quilt EZ boards.
I decided to apply the binding by machine.  The quilts were machine pieced and machine quilted so why not machine binding?
Happy stitching everybody,
Nancy

Beautiful quilts! I like hearing what each person likes and doesn't like about the quilt making process. For me, I tend to get stuck at the basting stage. I love making quilt tops.
