Last night I borrowed Fawn’s sewing machine and sewed the binding onto the quilt I’ve been making for my sister.

I have to do the hand quilting on the border, but it will be easier now that the edges have been stabilized (I do the border quilting without a frame).  Once that’s done, I’ll hand stitch the binding onto the back.

You’ll have to excuse the poor quality of the photo – I took it quickly this morning with my iPad under dim lights. But what a difference having a binding partially sewn on makes to the way the quilt looks!
