UFO no more!

 I straight line machine quilted this top. You may remember from several months ago, I made 2 of these tops, so one to go.
 I used Gulliver's Travels backing, 54" wide. The quilt is finishing in at 42" square.
I put a quirky binding on, French fold, originally 2.5" wide. I do most of my bindings at 2.5" wide, then toss the excess into a bin, only if it's a fair length. I like to make pieced bindings for baby quilts and  piece several lengths together. Do you ever do that with your leftovers?

I might be a wee bit more creative on the next top, who knows....take care~~have a great Labor Day.


  1. Hey girl, it's good to see you posting again.
    I love the quilt you finished.
    I use my left over fabric all the time. Actually, I prefer a scrappy quilt.

    I have some UFOs to post soon. Gotta get my camera and start taking pics today. I am trying to finish the quilt tops I have before I start any other projects.....very difficult to do, especially with all the fun stuff you can find in all of these great blogs!

    Did you notice, my group of followers is finally over 41.....I am trying to get to 50 before the end of this year! Trying to prove to my BFF that it can happen.
    take care,

  2. I like the quilt. The Gullivers Travels is a fun backing. ~Jen
