WIP Wednesday 2

I know, I know I really should keep it a secret and wait until everything necessary is done.

But I can not help it.

I just have to share a little bit more of it.

Now don't get me wrong if it truly were a super secret project I would not reveal anything at all just so you know!

I will be honest, I think this will be the last peak until it is revealed.

Wip Wednesday

I could not help the excitement of wanting to share a bit of a shhhush...secret project!

I just excited that I have not ever made ice cream cones before in any of my quilts.
So just based on the fact that so far so good that everything is going swimmingly has me just over the moon thrilled!

Backing as a Binding Tutorial

Backing as a binding Tutorial

When you are finished with quilting your quilt you have a few options on how to bind your quilt.
Have you ever taken in the consideration of using your backing as a binding?
Well, if you never have there are some benefits to this method. 
  1. First off its budget friendly.
  2. If you ever find yourself in a time crunch and have to have the quilt finished ASAP this method is a lifesaver and it can be meant to be a temporary solution.
  3. If you do not have enough material around to match the quilt to make binding look at your backing it should all ready match your quilt top.
  4. If your backing is scrappy it will give your binding a more interesting appeal.
  5. It is an old school way of binding your quilt.
