This is my first real quilt. I bought the squares already cut out for Anna's quilt, and I just sewed them together, did minimal quilting, and did not do the binding. I have to say that cutting and piecing the fabrics together was so much fun. I loved every second of it.
The binding is another story. I hated that part and I may not ever do it again. I did it all on the machine, ripped out the first try, should have ripped out the second try, but decided enough was enough. Any tips out there? I would love to hear them.
I used scraps that I already had, then found the perfect chocolate brown and white checked fabric at Joann's. So nice to see my big scrap basket shrinking.
