Finishing a Quilt

Thanks for all the pattern love….and the me-being-a-hermit understanding. :)

I’ll share more about the quilts in the next few posts, but for now I wanted to share the button on my sidebar that looks like this:

finish button

If you click on it you can download the PDF that includes my how-to tutorials for basting, quilting, and binding.  Its long….sorry about that…and I kind of ramble….and I didn’t edit it or anything so don’t expect any all star quality.  Its the same one I try to include with the PDF patterns.  Mainly this is an attempt to answer 96% of the emails I get daily.  Hopefully it will help some of the many beginning quilters out there take the next step and FINISH THAT QUILT!   Enjoy!

Pin It!

thank you thank you! that's exactly what I need...I just finished a quilt (2 days ago...) and I'll venture on batting and binding. It's my first real big quilt and I want to make sure I get it right.

Wow, I am but that took some time. Thank you. Your quilts really are just beautiful. I love your patterns, your choices in fabric. You are fabulous.

I have a question: Do you have a "design wall" and what kind of fabric is generally used to make a design wall???

Thank you, that is really helpful. I hope that with practice my quilts will look as nicely finished as yours.

This is great! I have been having issues with my basting, so it was good to get some new ideas. Also, I am just venturing into free motion, so that section was especially useful to me. Thanks, Allison!

Thank you so much for answering my plea for help in how to make a quilt sandwich! You will happy to know that I successfully pin basted my quilt this week and I am happily stitching along. However I am unable to move my legs due to the time spent on the tile floor kneeling on pins:(
