Just got in a very bright and colorful quilt pieced by Becky Leonard of Virginia. Only the backing is flannel. I'll be doing the binding on this one as well. Becky has shared the story behind this quilt in her comment. Without a doubt, this is a special quilt for a special young lady.
Apr 22: Preparing backing and top to load. Seams in the backing should be pressed open and all seams on the back of the top should lay flat. I like to use an iron to touch up any extra creases or folds that cannot be helped when shipped. IQ is programmed with a 7.5" high pattern. (Becky, let me know if you think the dragon files pattern needs to larger/looser.)
Apr 23: Finished loading & basting. Ready to quilt. And quilted! Posting a lot of finished pictures because they came out so well. That doesn't usually happen. Must be a magic quilt.
Apr 24: Binding is now attached. Hand binding is underway.
Apr 26: Binding is finished.
