By the time we went to Denmark, the quilt was ready to have the binding sewn on - I actually had the crazy idea of taking the quilt and sewing on the binding en route! But imagine having a quilt, although modestly sized, on your lap and sewing it; maybe it would flop around and hit Tony while he was driving. Yeah, not good. Also, stitching while in a moving car usually equals motion sickness, which is less than ideal when the drive takes somewhere around 16 hours!
So, that idea was ditched! ;-)
This quilt is also the second one where I've used mitered corners. That used to be quite a mystery to me, but now it seems fairly straightforward... Imagine that!
wonky dots design next to it.. :-)
Flower*Press, Japanese cottons, fabric from Denmark, vintage fabric and even one of Tony's old shirts! I love using 'old' clothing in quilts. It's nice that they can get a second life after their usefulness as clothing has ended. :-)
