Quilting & Binding

Here's a final look at the quilt that I have been helping a friend make for her daughter-in-law. (See the previous posts about this quilt HERE and HERE.) My friend chose to "quilt by check" and let Anya do the actual quilting on this quilt. The quilting doesn't show up that well in the photo, but it's a lovely meander that allows the design of the quilt to shine through. Yesterday we had a quick lesson in binding and once the handwork is done, the quilt will be finished and there will officially be a new quilter among our ranks!
