Quilt Binding

This Remix fabric by Ann Kelle was a major inspiration for my zigzag quilt. There are already so many bright colors in the quilt that throwing in this fabric as the binding may be little much. But I love it so much that I couldn’t resist. More is more, right? 🙂

Since this is my first quilt, every step in construction is new (and intimidating!) to me. I took a look at a couple of tutorials online and was psyching myself up to give binding the quilt a go when my mom arrived in town last week to visit my sister Jan. She’s an expert quilter so I, um, had her help me/do it for me instead. (I know, I know…but at this point I just wanted to get it finished. But I now that I’ve seen how it’s done I am totally going to bind the next one myself.)

So the quilt is finished and I’m really happy with it. I can see all of my mistakes (of which there are many) but both of the kids love snuggling with it which was the whole point. I’ll get pictures up as soon as I can.
