My goal was to quilt and bind this two color quilt.
Here is the finishing process and the finished quilt which will go to my sister in support of her Prayer Quilt Ministry. I hope this quilt will bring comfort to someone in need.
Long arm quilting
After quilting I finished the edges using my serger. The serger cuts the extra fabric and batting off and I'm left with a nice finished edge. I don't like fighting with the quilt sandwich as I'm sewing on the binding and serging the edges really helps.
A smooth even edge to now work with. The serged stitch width is set for one quarter inch and doesn't interfere with the binding stitch. The added serger threads give the binding a nice stiffness.
I ALWAYS use my domestic machine to sew the binding on (No hand sewing in my sewing studio...too many projects, not enough human years). I sew the binding edge to the quilt back, iron over to the front side and sew down the binding edge to the quilt front.
The reverse side of the quilt with the binding sewn on.
The finished quilt and another project checked off my UFO list.
