I grabbed a few spare minutes this morning to finish the binding on the NinePatch. I had a long piece of bias cut binding so I thought I'd try round corners on this one. It sort of softens up the squares of the piecing and goes with the round pattern on the border quilting. It is large enough for a topper on my queen bed but it will probably be a sofa quilt. I am not really happy with the quilting. It stretched out of shape a bit on the first couple of rows of stitching. Then I did free motion on the borders. I am still learning FM as you can see on the close up. It was good practise though so it is not a total loss. Now I have to wash it to see if the marking comes out. I just hate washing new quilts but I think I will have to on this one so I will know if it is safet to use the blue carpenter's chalk for marking on white.
Now off to do some more cooking.
Merry Christmas to all you bloggers out there. Have a good one!
