At long last, a finish. After beavering away at one UFO after another, it’s such a good feeling to finally have a finish, I can tell you! So here is my version of Little Letters. This project was designed by the Temecula Quilt Company and offered as a free weekly Quilt-Along. I was a little late starting, but soon caught up, and had fun making all these little letters every week.
My Little Letters quilt
The binding is machine stitched on , folded to the back, and all pinned down in place and I plan to hand stitch this tonight in front of the TV. I know that some quilters use those special binding clips instead of pinning. Perhaps I should invest in some of those? Then I wouldn’t be stabbing myself on the pins the way I often do. I’m always a little behind any sort of new technology and ideas - would you recommend me changing to the binding clips? Any thoughts welcome.
Then all I need to do is add a hanging sleeve and a label. Don’t tell my (grown-up) grand-daughters, but I’ve really made this little quilt to put away in my Grand-mother box for when the next generation comes along. I can just see it being used as a play mat with a lovely chubby chortling baby having a little tummy time. In the meantime, I’ll keep it here, perhaps hang it is my sewing room occasionally and enjoy colours.
