Friendship Signature Quilt Finish

12 10 2012

At home I’m a speedy sew-er, chain piecing with my Pfaff or longarming with the Millennium. I rarely relax on the couch with a quilt binding project in my lap. However, binding by hand is a perfect car trip project. Hubby, the driver, doesn’t mind if my eyes are on a quilt rather than on the roadside scenery; he can thus avoid comments or suggestions on his driving! On a recent car trip I hand stitched the binding of my Friendship Signature quilt. The blocks were gifts from my Stuttgart quilting friends. (See 18 August post.)

“Picnic” Signature Quilt

Several leftover signature blocks combined with some “Ups and Downs” blocks enlarged the quilt backing.

“Art Back” of Signature Quilt

Carol Watkins, owner of Loving Stitches quilt shop, recently affirmed that a pieced quilt back is considered an “art back” and adds value to the quilt. It is gratifying to think that my lack of fabric becomes an opportunity for creatively enhancing the value of my quilt!
