Here is Preston's custom memory quilt already for hand stitching! I a very happy with how this quilt turned out. Yay! for my second commissioned quilt!
I have been having trouble recently with sewing on bindings. I keep getting too narrow. I never used to do this and was getting very frustrated. I finally asked one of the ladies at my LQS about it. She said to just re-stitch those parts wider. WELL DUH! I felt like an idiot! Of course, just go back over it wider. As you can see from the photo below, that is exactly what I did.
I even embroidered her name into a border on the quilt. Did you know that to iron embroidery you should do it from the back?
It works wonderfully!
Here is half of my cut fabric! I have been on a big Kona Solids kick lately. I don't see an end in sight either! I cannot wait to stitch this up :)
