short n sweet

I'm at that stage where my piece of handmade fabric turns into a quilt.
Four fabrics were auditioned for the part as binding
I almost went with a pink
but in the back of my mind I was always thinking 
herringbone..herringbone..herringbone.
Joel Dewberry herringbone fabric is my all time favourite fabric
it is the perfect binder
when you join it together the seams become invisible...joy!

  7. It's a great choice! I love the hand-binding process, just a great way to unwind at the end of a quilt and let the slow finish complete it....
