I’m another step closer to the completion of Horse Quilt No2. Yards and yards (or should that be metres?) of bright blue binding strips have been cut, stitched, pressed in half and wound onto a cardboard roll.
Plenty of binding prepared
The backing is finally completed too. I don’t know what happened to my calculations but I had quite a few black and grey blocks left over. At one stage I thought I had carefully worked out just how many I needed but I obviously made an error. Never mind, surplus to requirements they may be, but they go very well on the back. These blocks were edged with a strip of the blue fabric I had been using as sashing. Then I used up all of my plain black fabric to surround the centre – still not wide enough. Luckily I had some dark grey to add to the sides to bring it up to the correct size.
Backing for the horse quilt
As this is a big queen size quilt I will be taking it to get commercially quilted sometime – it’s much too big for me to handle. I’ve done all I can at the moment with this project, so it is finally off my list.
