Another Quilt Ready to Bind

This is my Moda U Block of the Month from 2008 – 2009. The fabrics from a Three Sisters line.  In addition to this being a piecing sampler, I’ve made it a quilting sampler.

As it turns out I’ve been working on it for a month, loading it on the frame September 21st.  In each of the large white blocks, I used the same quilting motif.

Most of the pieced blocks had some sort of outline stitch — either curved, or in the ditch – depending on my mood when I got there. I experimented with the crosshatching tool on my machine.

The first time I loaded the quilt, I just ditched the sashings and borders. At that point I took it off the machine to work on customer quilts.

A couple of days ago I loaded it back on to finish it.

The outer border has a feather motif with curly q’s and circles.  The inner border is leaves.

On this pass I also filled in the sashings.

After the 2nd pass,  I took the quilt off the frame, trimmed it leaving 3″ past the borders, pinned it back on the frame and quilted the side borders.

Check out the matching of the borders.

The quilt is now off the frame and trimmed for binding.  Now the challenge is finding something to use for the binding.  I learned a lot on this quilt and can’t wait to put some of the lessons to use on my other tops waiting to be quilted.
