almost finished

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I've kicked some quilting tail even though I have been traveling a lot this week. I still can't believe that I got these two quilted and the binding attached before I headed to Camp Stitch A Lot. It was just under the wire, of course! It's quite likely that by the time this post publishes that these bindings will be done! I hope to have these complete and ready to share early next week. Sorry for the teaser, but I didn't want to skip finish it up Friday this week! (There are not enough hours in the day!!!)

How about you? Do you have a finish to share? If so, please link up! Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!

I noticed your binding is on but you haven't trimmed the quilt yet...what are the advantages? I haven't seen that done before? I like concentric quilting on the solids quilt...looks interesting!

Enjoy your time..

Looks like a low volume I really want to see! I've had the itch and did a fabric pull last night. What to do tho'--do grays go with browns and tans??? How selective were you with your first low volume you made?

When I heard you would be teaching at Camp Stitchalot, I badly wanted to go! I couldn't but can't wait to hear about it. Am enjoying Brenda's up-to-the-minute IG posts about it. :)

Do you sew your binding on before you trim the quilt? I was wondering how that worked....is it ever an issue with things not matching up? Maybe not for you, but I know sometimes my edges are not always straight.

Gosh your quilting looks wonderful. I hope your bindings went well and we get to see the big reveals soon. Have a great time at camp!

Ditto on what Karen in the Badlands said about the binding. How about a post on that. N

I don't have a blog, but I do have a finish this week. This one was washed and dried this morning. Feels great to check this one off the list...it's headed to its owner!

Hmmm, I've never seen binding on a quilt before it's been trimmed, is it easier that way? I've always trimmed first... having said that my binding never looks like that either ... there must be a few ways to do binding.
