I did something a little different with the binding. Here's a close-up-
I used the backing that's left over after it's machine quilted, the extra width and length they need to attach it to their machine, to make the binding. But since the back was pieced, the binding was pieced so I just matched it up and made it fit. The photo is showing the back of the quilt with a portion of the front flipped over onto it.
Linda of L&R Designs then quilted it with a pattern called Plumage. Check out her blog for quilting design ideas for your quilts. I'm going to start a contest in the near future where you can win a pattern so check back for details!
