Rail Fence, Quilted

Chris quilted the Rail Fence quilt in freehand Baptist Fans. I love it.


Since the quilt is going to be used as a table covering, I wasn't too fussy about the backing. I wanted to use something from my stash. I found an ant farm!

 Bugs for the binding seemed perfect and fun!

I think it's going to look cool. The only thing I can't decide is whether to machine sew the binding or hand sew it. I will be teaching a class on this technique at Quilted Threads, and the quilt will be used as a sample. I want it to look good.

I guess that means I have a few hours of hand stitching ahead of me.

Lurve that backing fabric Lynne! What did you have in mind for it when you bought it?

I'm considering machine-sewing my next binding because I take tiny stitches hand-sewing, and it takes forever. Please share your machine-sewing technique. I'm sure if I tried it, the binding seam would be the first thing anyone would see. If you're even considering it for a class, you are way better than that. :)

i'm sure with your skill level I'm confident that you could machine stitch it. you're halfway there with all those clips! I know you can do it!
