This is the quilt that I made for my step-daughter Kath. I showed this photo a while back before I put the binding on. I know I took a picture of it once it was completed but for the life of me I don’t know where it is.
Kath has the cutest pugs, Luna and Vinney, who like to sleep on the bed. So any quilt that goes on the bed gets washed over and over again. The last quilt I made her I finished sewing the binding, by hand. It didn’t hold up very well. It came back to me for “warranty” work and that time I was smart enough to sew the binding down with my sewing machine. This time I like to think I’m a little smarter. The binding was sewn on using a faux piping method and completely done by machine.
I used this tutorial http://tlcstitches.blogspot.com/2010/07/faux-piped-binding-tutorial.html. Although I like how it turned out, I think I will play with the measurements a little bit next time. I’d like the piping to look a bit more like a flange and be a little wider. Should be a simple adjustment.
Kath loved the quilt and I’m sure the dogs will like it too.
