You might remember that a while back I showed you a picture of a quilt I'd finished with some black/30's blocks that I'd swapped with Robin and Michelle either last year or the year before. Well, I sent it out to Sandi for quilting and when it came back I immediately put the binding on and started to tack it down. Now...I'm not known for being fast at binding so I won't disappoint you and say I did it all in 1 night...no, I can easily say it took me about 2-3 weeks to tack it down...BUT, I finished it earlier in the week and then threw it in the dryer to give it a little fluffiness and now it's ready for use.

Since I did do these blocks with my 2 best friends in the whole wide world, I'm going to keep this top for ME! Here's a picture of the finished top and another picture of the fabric I used to back and bind it....
Now to put the binding on my Thimbleberries Log/Churnie top......

That is so pretty!

I LOVE tacking down the binding. I don't know why--I just find it very satisfying! : )
