It's time to add binding!

Just to be clear - I am not hand quilting this quilt.

It's 100% machine quilted but for this no-sashing version of Quilt-As-You-Go, I chose to hand stitch the backing seams, kind of following the method Jera Brandvig from Quilting in the Rain uses.

You can machine stitch the backing joins with a stitch in the ditch foot (how is it I don't own one of these?)

In other news, I found a bottle of Marking Pencil Remover by Quilters Rule International in the back of a cupboard and by using a cotton bud (Q-tip?) was able to remove some of that wretched Hemline water-soluble (it's not) pencil.

Not perfect but much better. As always - test, test, test on your fabrics before using.

  1. You are making progress. It always feels good to get to the binding. I am looking forward to photos of the finished quilt. Glad to hear you found the marking pencil remover and it helped. Hopefully the marks will eventually all wash out.


Thank you for stopping by.
