Yep, more of the "A" word, rudimentary as it is. I think it needed it, and I didn't suffer too badly for it.
I didn't want heavy quilting on this one, so just did in-the-ditch between the blocks, then went across the blocks with the "hand quilting" stitch on my Janome. I think it came out really nice.. more effective than my own hand quilting, way faster and easier.
I also finished my Sister's Choice, which is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter.
I don't know about you but I believe the binding can make or break a quilt. I was fortunate to find just enough of this stripe in my stash, and think it frames it nicely and adds a touch of pizzazz.
Happy New Year, everyone!
