The end is near, I can almost taste it! I cant fully decide which part of making a quilt is the most fun. By far, for me free motion quilting is the most enjoyable part, but the most exciting part of making a quilt is adding the finishing touches, hiding those last few missed thread tails, squaring up the quilt and making the binding and sewing it on.

I've used the last remaining strips from the jelly roll to make the binding strips. I starched it really well, that way I have the best control, and while sewing it on the quilt there's hardly any shifting.
Now all that is left to do, is hand sew the binding to the back of the quilt, and I still need to make a label. Watch this space for the big reveal... :-)
