Here is a tabletopper I finished quilting and now have part of the binding sewn on ready for stitching. I do my binding two sides at a time and don't use bias. Have done it so long that way and probably will continue to do so. I have done continuous binding a couple of times but seem to prefer this. What is your favorite way of applying the binding?
I really like the way the back looks - it shows up better than on the front. This time I used the #60 thread and the knots on the back don't pile up like the thicker thread. Wish I had become more comfortable with machine quilting years ago but I'm glad I am able to do what I do now.
This is a work in progress with more of the Christmas fabric from Moda and Joann's. It will be one of at least two tablerunners. The green background and the very top one with candy like circles came from Joann and the rest is Moda. How about that for a blend. Sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy when it's enlarged - must have jiggled the camera or had it on a wrong setting. (Click to enlarge)
