Chevron

...and deadlines. I made my deadline of finishing the baby quilt so that I could give it as my donation quilt to my quilt guild's community quilt outreach program at today's meeting.



This time, I went with a 1/2 inch binding.  I cut 3 inch strips that were sewn together, then folded in half, and attached with a 1/2 in seam. I like the look of the 1/2 binding. What I would do differently is to sew just less than a 1/2 seam so that when I fold over the fabric it is easier to cover my stitch line with the fabric.

  1. I almost always make a double bias, as I hear it wears better (and baby quilts get a lot of wear).
