Binding Uneven Edges
The hand quilting is finished on the the Plaid Churn Dash. It only took about five months - for better or worse. I wasn't in a hurry and it was a little warm to sit under a quilt during the summer months.
When I laid it out to cut off the extra batting and backing I remembered the unevenness where some of the edge triangles join, shown at the bottom of the photo below.
I asked you readers in an earlier post what you would do in the case of a quilt made years ago before you had enough experience to be successful and whether you would try to fix those large triangles around the edges. Most of you recommended leaving it and chalking it up to lack of experience, which is exactly what I did. I think I'll be doing some fudging when I stitch the binding on.
I hope to stitch the binding on tomorrow and then I can begin hand stitching it to the back.
I'm linking this post to WOW at Esther's Blog and W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Thank you, ladies for hosting.
