Grey Chain Reaction


I never properly showed you this quilt…its a grey version of the Chain Reaction pattern.  The grey is Kona Ash I believe, and its backed with Kona Aqua.  I love the light grey for a boy…although I think I still love the aqua version of this quilt better.

Binding



I had a some questions regarding the zig zag stitches along the quilts edge in this post.   I zig zag the edges after I finish the quilting & squaring to prepare the edges for binding.  It only takes a few minutes to do since I do a large zig zag, and it makes the edges so tight and neat while I’m sewing the binding on.  I started doing it along time ago after Amber posted about serging the edges…and since I don’t have a serger, the zig zag works just as well.  Try it……you’ll like it. :)
