I am still knee deep in free motion quilting "the biggest quilt I've ever made," but I can see the finish line.  The quilting is about 80% finished...roughly one nap time's worth left to go if my son cooperates.  The next step will be figuring out what to do for the binding.  Since both the border and backing are solid, I'm considering making a scrappy binding using the leftover scraps from the blocks in the top.  I think a scrappy binding would stand out more and make the edge of the quilt more interesting.  Hopefully the next update will be to show off the finished quilt!   


  1. I was just looking up information on motion quilting...I haven't braved those waters yet, but I'm wanting to!

    Thanks for stopping by astepinthejourney!

  2. Good luck finishing up! I can't wait to see the finished project... that one pic has me really curious :)
