Late last spring, I took several flimsies to Lori Null to have long arm quilted. They came back home in late September/early October. Now they needed to have the binding to be completely finished.
I sewed the binding on Metro Rings first because it was the smaller quilt at 69" by 88". I pieced Metro rings at the Jane Stickle retreat last April. You can read about it here.
Lori did a lovely job, here's a close up of the quilting.
And a close up of the border which doesn't really show that well.
For backing I used fabric I had on hand. I thought the light green and peach color rather coordinated with the fabrics on the front.
The quilting shows nicely on the backside.
My mother gave me this green fabric years ago, in fact I used some of on the back of a quilt I made son #1 and his bride for a wedding quilt back in 2000.
I think the peach is from her stash too, she had a lot of that '80's peach color.
I added the outside borders to the quilt myself, that wasn't a part of the original pattern. I wanted the quilt to be twin sized so, borders it was!
I'll try to get the binding on the other quilt for next week's post.
