Finished


After my batting fiasco, my Mon Ami is finally finished.  This was also my first binding finish with the new machine.  With switching machines my seam allowance for attaching the binding was a bit off, so I have a very full binding that had to be sewn by hand.  I had forgotten that is is more difficult to hand sew a batik binding than regular cotton. (Unless I'm imagining things?)



Since it was a rather nice day here, and you've see this project (and all it's HSTs) so many times, I ventured out to try to get a few interesting photos.

Thanks for 'venturing out'! The snow stopped early this morning here (southeast MN, just west of La Crosse). At least the temps were moderate. Had intentions of doing some sewing but weren't achieved. Lack of sunshine/vit.D has been my reasoning!!! I have really enjoyed following the process on this quilt and really love the finish. Batiks can be different to hand sew. Doreen

It looks beautiful.....such nice photos :) Congratulations on getting it finished. I don't like to do my binding on a different machine....I still use my older machine for binding, because the new one is a little different. Did that make any sense?? LOL!!
