so I had tine to hand sew a binding on :)
My bro's plus quilt is done, wrapped and ready for courier collection tomorrow.
I forgot to measure it but it's about 58" by 63" so a decent size snuggle quilt, even for a 6ft3 bloke, DH sat with it and it's fine for him so bro and a kitty cat will manage.
I sneaked outside while it was dry to take photo's, it's foggy and looks like snow but at least the wall wasn't too damp. I used YLI variegated thread for the quilting but aurifil for the piecing.
This one was pieced on the dream Bernina and quilted on the Brother PQ1500
The binding is scrappy made up of the left over pieces of top fabric and the back is a large cotton bed sheet I bought in La Redoute sale in the summer.
As it was for his 35th Birthday, I thought we'd handwrite a label, I usually don't label the quilt or if I do I embroider one but I thought it'd be nice for the kids to be able to sign it.
Stitched it on once i'd squared it up and job done...first finish :)
