It’s good to have a finish, and I have to admit that this one was an easy finish. With the quilt top and backing layered and pinned, it didn't take to long to do some simple machine quilting with my walking foot. Then stitch the binding on.
Last night I sat and stitched the binding down by hand while Robin was engrossed in a rugby game on TV. I quite enjoy doing this step, quietly hand stitching on the back, and watching it get nearer and nearer to completion.

This is the first time I have used 1930s fabrics, and most of these were a gift from my pen-friend Margaret from Birmingham, England. Not quite sure what I will do with this cot sized quilt yet, it could go in to my Granny box but I think I’ll be waiting a long time for my grand daughters to marry and have babies. It’s sure to find a home soon, there has been a flurry of weddings amongst Robin’s nieces over the last year or so.
